ADA Transition Plan for City of Burlington Public Facilities Overview
In an effort to make the City of Burlington’s public facilities accessible to all, the City is in engaged in developing an American with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan for the city’s public facilities. The ADA Transition Plan for public facilities demonstrates the City of Burlington’s commitment to providing equal access to all of its public programs, services, facilities, and activities for citizens with disabilities.
The Plan is intended to identify physical obstacles that limit the accessibility of facilities to individuals with disabilities, describe the methods to be used to make the facilities accessible, provide a schedule for making modifications to better provide access, and identify the public officials responsible for implementation of the Transition Plan.
The City has set the goal to fully implement the ADA Transition Plan by the end of 15 years.
The Transition Plan process is currently underway and the City would like your comments and concerns regarding facility accessibility to assist in the development of the Transition Plan. Please help with this process and list your concerns regarding accessibility of the public facilities within the City of Burlington.
The City is looking for input from:
People with disabilities – the City is seeking representatives for a variety of disabilities.
Other individuals and members of groups that encounter barriers related to transportation, such as parents of children with disabilities.
People with experience and knowledge of ADA planning and requirements or also serve disabled populations.
Interested City of Burlington residents.
