(BLOOMINGTON) - As part of the City of Bloomington's ongoing effort to comply with the requirements and intent of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the City is seeking public input on a draft version of an update to its ADA Transition Plan.
The City of Bloomington prepared its first ADA Transition Plan in 1990 and has updated it several times since then.
The ADA requires public agencies with more than 50 employees to maintain an up-to-date Transition Plan, which should survey accessibility barriers in programs and services and provide a plan to remove them. Title II of the ADA prohibits state and local governments from discriminating against people on the basis of their disability and from excluding people from participation in programs, services or activities because of their disability.
The City of Bloomington's draft update of its ADA Transition Plan can be accessed online at www.bloomington.in.gov/planning. A printed version is available for review at the Monroe County Public Library, 303 E. Kirkwood Ave., in the Indiana Room. Printed and Braille versions of the plan will also be available in the Planning Department office at City Hall, 401 N. Morton St, Suite 160.
Residents have the opportunity to provide input on the draft plan until Feb. 28. Written comments can be sent to the Planning Department via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to 401 N. Morton St., Ste. 160, Bloomington, IN 47404. Residents also may comment by contacting the Planning Department directly at 349.3423.
