ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan

Project Description

The City of Marysville is committed to providing equal access to its public programs, services, facilities, and activities for all citizens including those with disabilities. To achieve this end, the City is developing an ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan for the public right-of-way in compliance with federal and state law. To reach full compliance, the City intends to perform a self-evaluation of City facilities (buildings and parks) and City programs, services or activities within the next 2 to 3 years.

The City of Marysville’s ADA notice provides more information on the precedent for ADA compliance and the City’s legal responsibilities.

To satisfy the requirements set forth by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973,Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (CFR 28 Part 35), and WSDOT Local Agency Guidelines Manual (Chapter 29), this ADA Transition Plan intends to: 

  • identify physical and communicative barriers in the City of Marysville’s public right-of-way that limit the accessibility to individuals with disabilities;
  • describe the methods to be used to make the public right-of-way accessible;
  • provide a schedule for making necessary modifications to provide better access and achieve compliance; and
  • identify the public officials responsible for implementation of the plan.
