    The City of Arvada launched “Access Arvada” a public feedback process to gather input from Arvada residents on the City’s draft ADA Transition Plan. The draft plan focuses on title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which prohibits discrimination based on disability for state and local government services. The City is committed to providing accessible programs, services and facilities for people with disabilities.

    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.

    Program milestones

    • Self Assessment: As part of Access Arvada, the City has performed a review of compliance with the ADA for resources like City facilities, parks, right-of-way, and on the City’s website and other communications.
    • Draft ADA Transition Plan: We are developing a list of opportunities to improve accessibility and creating an action plan, including an ADA Transition Plan, to schedule ongoing work.
    • Public Comment Period: The City will ask residents to provide feedback on the draft ADA Transition Plan to help prioritize the work.
    • Council Presentation: The team will present the prioritized ADA Transition Plan to City Council.
    • Implement the Plan: The City team will work to complete the ADA Transition Plan and we will share periodic updates with residents.
