El Paso County ADA Transition Plan 2019

El Paso County developed, approved and adopted an ADA Transition Plan (Plan). The Plan was advertised in a news release on October 24, 2019, soliciting public review and comment. Citizens had a 30-day comment period beginning October 25, 2019 to provide feedback to the County at epcadacorrespondence@elpasoco.com. The draft form of the Plan was presented at the Board of County Commissioners work session on October 24, 2019 and then approved and adopted December 19, 2019 on Resolution 19-472.

The Transition Plan was developed by El Paso County’s ADA division in compliance with the ADA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (504) requirements as defined by related regulations. Updates to the 2019 Transition Plan, Quarterly updates to the Summary of Open Barrier Findings with expected current year and future period corrections are hyperlinked for public view.

“As mentioned in Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act, all state and local governments are required to adopt a Transition Plan,” said Brian Olson, Director of Facilities and Strategic Infrastructure. “As we are compelled by law to do so, we are driven to meet the needs for our County citizens, to include those in the disabled community.”

“El Paso County is committed to full and equal opportunity for all its citizens, including individuals with disabilities,” said Vince Maciunskas, Infrastructure Project Manager. “The County recognizes that its community’s continued vitality, strength and vibrancy results from the valuable contributions from the entire community.”
