ADA Transition Plan
ADA self-evaluation and transition plan
The Town has engaged with consulting firm Meeting the Challenge Inc. to complete an ADA self-evaluation and transition plan for the Town’s facilities and parks. Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act prescribes self-evaluation and transition plans as the required processes for identifying and scheduling the removal of barriers to access by people with disabilities.
A transition plan is a listing of barriers and potential barriers to access. While Title II regulation does not specifically require intervals at which a public entity must revisit and revise its transition plan, the regulation requires all new construction and alterations since Jan. 26, 1992, to adhere to ADA standards.
Starting in late 2019, the Town has identified ADA-related policies and practices and analyzed whether they adversely affect the full participation of individuals with disabilities in Town programs, activities and services. Additionally, Town staff and the consultants have examined each of our facilities to determine whether any physical barriers to program access exist. The Town is now ready to proceed with any needed modifications to its services, policies and practices.
When prioritizing the removal of barriers or revision of policies, it is important to gather input from the public, including people with disabilities and organizations that represent and advocate for people with disabilities. Seeking this input, which is a regulatory requirement, is fundamentally part of the ADA’s promise of inclusion and integration.
To that end, the Town has developed several methods to solicit public comments on our draft transition plan, including from people with disabilities. Online comments are being accepted through Nov. 25, 2020.
In addition to accepting online feedback, the Town and our consultant facilitated two public meetings in November.
Hard copy comment forms will be available during the comment period at Town Hall, Castle Rock Police Department/Municipal Court, the Castle Rock Recreation Center and the Miller Activity Complex. Those with comments may also contact Town staff directly using the information on this page.
Request an accommodation
Anyone who requires a modification to participate in this feedback process should contact Town staff or submit a request online at least 48 hours before the event for which the accommodation is needed.
