Hearing Loop installed in Council Chambers

The St. Louis Park City Council Chambers was the first in the state of Minnesota to have a hearing loop installed, which assists guests that use hearing aids. Most new hearing aids have a Telecoil or T setting that allows them to hear a public address system very clearly, if a hearing loop is installed. The loop is a copper wire installed underneath the carpeting that is connected to the public address system amplifier.

Loop Minnesota is a hearing advocacy group that donated funds for the hearing loop equipment and installation, and references the St. Louis Park Council Chambers on their website:

Hearing loops have been installed in many public meeting spaces over the last few years. City staff have received a number of favorable comments about the audio quality of the system since it was installed last year. Thanks to Loop Minnesota and Brian Hoffman, who arranged for the monetary donation and installation.  

There is a sign outside the Chambers to alert guests that a hearing loop is available. One of the benefits to a hearing loop is that it is very discrete audio assistance, as compared to using earphones that amplify the public address system. More details about the technology are available here,
