ADA Transition Plan

ADA Transition Plan Will Guide the Town of Bennett’s Future Accessibility Updates and Improvements

The Town of Bennett is working on developing a published ADA Transition Plan. The purpose of the plan is to provide formal guidelines and goals to improve accessibility throughout the Town and serve as a means of formal documentation of the procedure, as well as the progress already taken place in accordance
with Title II of the American with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The first step in the process for creating and implementing a Transition Plan is to conduct a Self Evaluation by inventorying and assessing existing pedestrian facilities to identify access barriers to persons with disabilities within the public right-of-way. The pedestrian facilities that will be inventoried are the pedestrian
facilities along roadways, primarily sidewalks and curb ramps, to document what facilities are present and in compliance with applicable standards or are needing to be constructed or improved for compliance.

The Self Evaluation findings will provide the framework for developing the Town’s ADA Transition Plan. As the Town develops its ADA Transition Plan, it will provide opportunities to interested parties, including individuals with disabilities or organizations representing individuals with disabilities, to participate in the development of the Transition Plan.
