ADA Transition Plan

Americans with Disabilities Act Title II Regulations
The Americans with Disabilities Act was passed in 1990 as a step towards the disestablishment of discrimination against individuals with disabilities. ADA Title II requires communities to establish self-evaluations and/or transition plans, as determined by community employee size, for updating public facilities. Title II covers programs, activities, and services of government entities with a specific focus on protecting citizens from discrimination on the basis of disability. The goal of this act is to afford every individual the opportunity to benefit from businesses and services and to afford businesses and services the opportunity to benefit from the patronage of all Americans.

Regulations state that structural, architectural, and communication barriers must be removed in public areas of existing facilities when their removal is readily achievable - in other words, easily accomplished and able to be carried out without unfair difficulty or expense.  Public buildings, public parks, sidewalks, curb ramps, and pedestrian signals will be assessed in order to understand wheat modifications are required.  An ADA Transition Plan is currently being drafted to outline how the City of Cedar Hill will work to improve accessibility to all of its facilities.
