Did you know that each municipality in the country is required to have an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan in place? Unfortunately, many municipalities have not completed their transition plan requirements because the task is daunting. Municipalities around the country are under fire from the Department of Justice for not having their ADA Transition Plans complete. Accessology is coming to the area to host a roundtable discussion to talk about what they are, why they’re important, and what your agency can do to comply with the requirements.

Who should attend?

Join us for a FREE two-hour roundtable to learn the basics and get valuable insight on what you need to do, why you need to comply and where to begin!  E-mail ahill@accessology.com to request more information.

ADA Transision PLan Discussion Coming to an area near you

 

The roundtable will consist of a brief presentation on what is required for Transition Plan development followed by discussion on what unique issues and challenges your agency faces. We will provide strategy, guidance and insight on getting your ADA Transition Plan in place based on our work with other municipalities across the country.

ADA Background Information

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 is a civil rights statute that prohibits discrimination against people who have disabilities. Title II of the Act specifically addresses making public services and public transportation accessible to those with disabilities. Designing and constructing facilities for public use that are not accessible by people with disabilities constitutes discrimination. Governmental agencies and public entities are required to perform ADA self-evaluations of their current facilities. Agencies are then required to develop a Program Access Plan (Transition Plan) to address any deficiencies, or include the following:

The requirements of the ADA apply to all public entities or agencies no matter the size.

 

Why Should Your Agency Develop a Transition Plan?
