Lakeville ADA Self-Evaluation & Transition Plan

This web page is the online hub of the Lakeville ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan. We keep this site up to date with new information and events.

Welcome to the Lakeville ADA Self-Evaluation & Transition Plan Project Page

Using the guidelines provided by the Americans with Disabilities Act 1990 (ADA) the Town of Lakeville will conduct a thorough evaluation of their compliance with ADA regulations and commit to making improvements where necessary. The Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan will be completed over the course of four months.

What is the Self-Evaluation?

The self-evaluation is a comprehensive review of all Lakeville's public programs, activities, and services as well as public facilities, including public schools and the Council on Aging. This element of the plan will entail a building inventory and survey of all town owned property and their quarter mile walk-shed.

What is the Transition Plan?

Based on the findings in the Self-Evaluation, the project team will create the Transition Plan to detail the planned changes needed to achieve full program access. The Transition plan will outline an implementation timeline and a project prioritization schedule.

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.
