The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), enacted on July 26, 1990, is a civil rights law prohibiting discrimination against individuals on the basis of disability. As a provider of public transportation services and programs, Scott County must comply with this Act, and has developed a Transition Plan detailing how the County will ensure that all facilities are accessible to all individuals. Scott County must meet these general requirements for individuals with disabilities:
Access to all public programs and places;
Modification of policies that deny equal access;
Effective communication procedures;
An ADA Coordinator that coordinates ADA compliance;
Public notice of ADA requirements; and
Grievance procedure for resolution of complaints.
Scott County’s goal is to provide ADA-accessible pedestrian design features as part of the County’s transportation improvement projects (TIP). These standards and procedures will be kept up to date with nationwide and local best management practices
This is an informal open house meeting. No presentation will be given. County staff will be available to discuss issues and listen to your concerns. Maps and more information will be available for review.
