2022 ADA Transition Plan

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law on July 26, 1990 and provides civil rights protection to disabled individuals, guaranteeing equal opportunities in public accommodations, employment, transportation, telecommunications, as well as state and local government services. The United States Congress enacted this law to provide a “clear and comprehensive national mandate for the elimination of discrimination against individuals with disabilities”. Title II of the ADA requires all cities, towns, counties and other such local units of government that receive federal funds or that have more than 50 employees to complete a self-evaluation and corresponding Transition Plan, establish an ADA Coordinator and adopt grievance procedures for discrimination against qualified individuals with disabilities.

In developing the Transition Plan, all local communities and units of government covered under Title II need to first conduct a self-evaluation, which includes a comprehensive inventory of pedestrian facilities. This inventory will allow each community to identify non-compliant locations and develop a program for remedial repairs in order to bring facilities into compliance. Pulaski County has undertaken this comprehensive self-evaluation to determine the extent to which individuals with disabilities may be restricted from access to county owned facilities. Furthermore, this Transition Plan includes this detailed review and it outlines barrier removal solutions which will result in improved access for all individuals.
