ADA Transition Plan 2019

El Paso County is seeking public comment on its new ADA Transition Plan, which was presented to the Board of County Commissioners, in draft form, in a work session on Thursday, Oct. 24.

El Paso County’s ADA division is tasked with developing an Americans with Disabilities Act Transition Plan to be submitted for both public review and comment prior to its submission to the El Paso County Board of County Commissioners for approval and adoption as a County Resolution. The Transition Plan is designed to help El Paso County adhere to the ADA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (504) requirements as they are defined by related regulations to develop and implement a Transition Plan.

“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.”
