Commitment to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) prohibits discrimination and ensures equal opportunity for persons with disabilities in employment, state and local government services, public accommodations, commercial facilities, and transportation. It also mandates the establishment of telecommunications access.
It has been over 25 years since ADA was passed, and nationwide there has been incomplete achievement of key ADA goals: equal opportunity, full participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency.
The ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan demonstrates the community's commitment to systematically addressing barriers to accessibility. Developing a plan with participation from the public, and in particular from disabled community members can reduce barriers to program participation.
