In 2010-11, the U.S. Department of Justice updated Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) relating specifically to the accessibility of state and local government programs and services. To reflect these changes, as well as the accessibility improvements that have been made to City facilities and infrastructure, the City of Redmond updated its ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan.
According to the ADA, local governments must develop a transition plan describing how it will ensure its facilities, services, programs and activities are accessible. The transition plan:
- Identifies physical barriers that limit the accessibility of its programs or activities to individuals with disabilities.
- Describes the methods that will be used to remove the barriers.
- Provides an estimated schedule for taking the steps necessary to achieve compliance.
- Identifies the city official responsible for implementation and provides information on how to file a grievance or complaint.
The City of Mukilteo is currently creating a transition plan to reflect changes to its properties and programs, and will post the plan when available.
