The City, including our services, facilities and other infrastructure, is for everyone, and we are committed to ensuring the City is inclusive and accessible. To continue toward this goal, we are launching the Access Arvada campaign to evaluate the City’s progress in meeting the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and to identify and prioritize our next steps.
2020 marked the 30th anniversary of the passing of the ADA, the federal law prohibiting discrimination against people with disabilities, which requires accessibility accommodations for public services. A more accessible City helps all of us. For example:
Building safe and reliable infrastructure, like sidewalks, serves residents throughout their lives from young families to aging residents with reduced mobility.
Providing a website that works well for people with disabilities makes it easier for everyone to find information online.
Providing interpretation and translation services for people visiting City facilities and events improves our policies and programs by including more perspectives and experiences from our community.
And we are required by law to keep making progress.
The project team will review the feedback received during public comment and make adjustments to the priorities in the draft Transition Plan. For example, if residents indicate there is a barrier at a City park that many people visit, fixing that particular barrier may move up on the priorities list.
The project team will present their findings, public feedback and the draft ADA Transition Plan to Arvada City Council on April 12, 2021.
