COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. –In an effort to continuously improve access for people of all abilities, the City recently conducted a reassessment of the physical accessibility of its facilities, programs, activities and services and drafted an updated ADA Title II Transition Plan to better reflect current conditions. The public is invited to comment on the plan.
“The City is committed to full community participation and inclusion for people with disabilities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act,” said Title II ADA Manager Rob Hernandez. “We’ve already begun to address several of the high priority items identified during the self-evaluation, and this plan gives us a continuous, long-term approach to improving the accessibility to better serve our community.”
Because of the large number of City facilities, the full plan will be released in 15 phases over the next two years. Public comments and feedback for each phase will be accepted for 30 days after publication.
Phase 1 Comment Period March 7 - April 6
The Phase I release focuses on the City Administration Building, Municipal Court, City Hall and Pioneers Museum. The plans can be viewed on the City’s website at ColoradoSprings.gov/adatransitionplan. Public Comment on Phase 1 will be accepted until Saturday, April 6. Notice will be given as additional phases are published and open for comment.
