2021 ADA Self Evaluation and Transition Plan
What is a self-evaluation and transition plan?
Title II of the ADA and Section 504 requires us, as part of a self-evaluation, to assess our services, policies, and practices to modify any that discriminate against people with disabilities. It also requires that we develop a transition plan to identify physical changes to facilities necessary to achieve “program access.” We focus on program access to ensure that pedestrian and other facilities available to the public comply with state and federal accessibility standards.
Why is the ADA self-evaluation and transition plan being updated?
We originally developed our ADA Transition Plan in 2004. Industry best practices require public agencies to update their ADA Self Evaluation & Transition Plans to reflect the changing environment and infrastructure over time. This important process ensures that agencies can identify and remove barriers to their programs, policies, and activities, which include physical assets, services, and vehicles of communication.
Our public outreach ensures that members of the community living with disabilities have an opportunity to be informed about our process and provide feedback. Once public outreach has concluded, we take into consideration the critical information received from public feedback as our divisions and districts begin to organize information for implementation planning.
