The City of Charlottesville is gathering data to update its Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan and seeks input from individuals with disabilities, patrons, family members, caregivers, organizations, and agencies that support individuals with disabilities as well as from interested individuals with experience in accessibility needs and best practices. This community involvement will help the county with its self-evaluation process and allow better prioritization of current and future accessibility needs. The survey will be open until January 15, 2024.
Background & Objective
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) mandates that all State and Local Government agencies (referred to as Title II agencies) employing 50 or more individuals must undertake an ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan. This requirement extends to all public entities, regardless of their size.
The objective of this project has two parts:
Self-Evaluation: identify any potential barriers impeding the participation of individuals with disabilities in the county’s programs, services, and activities.
Transition Plan: create an actionable, trackable method for addressing those barriers. The transition plan details any structural/programmatic changes that would be undertaken to achieve access and specifies a time frame for their completion. It functions as a master plan and shows good faith that we have identified our issues and will work on them.
Scope of Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan
All facilities that are used or accessed by members of the public
