Your voice will continue to help persons with disabilities in Douglas County during the next step in finalizing the County’s Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan for Public Right-of-Way.
Input on the final draft of the Plan is welcome during an open house on Wednesday, January 30, from 4-6 p.m., at the Philip S. Miller Building, Commissioners’ Hearing Room, 100 Third Street, Castle Rock, CO 80104. Comments may also be submitted online or through the ADA Transition Plan Citizen Survey through February 15.
“The County’s draft Plan identifies procedures for implementing the Plan, removing barriers and promoting accessibility in the public right-of-way,” said County Commissioner and Board co-chair Roger Partridge. “We look forward to receiving additional public input.”
As part of an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan process, Douglas County heard from and listened to citizens in November 2018 through an online survey and an open house. Feedback identified areas to invest in repair, construction or improvement of sidewalks, curb ramps, roadway crossings and other areas of public right-of-way in unincorporated Douglas County.
Since then, the County incorporated citizen input in a final draft of the ADA Transition Plan for unincorporated Douglas County, now available for public review on the Douglas County website and at the Douglas County Philip S. Miller Library, 100 S. Wilcox Street, Castle Rock, CO 80104. The document is also available at the Douglas County Department of Public Works Engineering, 100 Third Street, Castle Rock, CO 80104.
During the open house, interpreters or special needs accommodations can be provided with advanced notice by contacting Carol Konecny, Douglas County Department of Public Works Engineering, at 303-660-7490 or email@example.com.
Formal adoption of the ADA Transition Plan will occur in March 2019 and will be available on the Douglas County website and by written formal request to the ADA Coordinator.
