ADA Transition Plan
In March of 2014, the City contracted with a consultant to complete a comprehensive update of the City's existing ADA Transition Plan, as well as the completion of a Self-Evaluation of all City programs to insure the City's programs and facilities are in compliance with the federal ADA law. The purpose of the Transition Plan is to identify and recommend corrections to programmatic, building, and infrastructure obstacles that prevent full access to City programs and services. The Transition Plan consists of a list of physical barriers present at the time of the Self-Evaluation and a detailed outline of the methods to be used to remove these barriers.
The public is invited to review the Final Draft of the City of Chandler ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan 2015. Comments may be directed to Leah Powell, at 480-782-4352 (or 711 via AZ Relay Service) or firstname.lastname@example.org
