The Board of Trustees recently adopted the Town of Bennett Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Self-Evaluation and Transition plan. The plan provides a comprehensive review of access for persons with disabilities at Town facilities, parks, right-of-ways, services, activities, events, website, etc. This plan is also a guide for the planning and implementation of programs and facility modifications for compliance with the ADA requirements. ADA transition plans are a federally mandated requirement by Title II – State and Local Governments of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The Town of Bennett has budgeted to begin implementation of approvals and modifications in 2024.
In 2022, the Town of Bennett hired Mile High Accessibility (MHA) as a consultant to review and evaluate policies and programs, then survey and audit all Town facilities, sidewalks, parks and trails to develop a Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan to improve ADA accessibility and compliance and make recommendations related to prioritization.
ADA compliance and the documentation of progress for identified areas for compliance modification is an ongoing process and must be tracked annually. The Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan in its entirety will be reviewed and updated every three years.
