[ARCHIVED] ADA Transition Plan Public Outreach and Public Hearing Notice

Please take notice that the City of Opelika, Alabama is in the process of updating its current ADA (Americans with Disabilities) Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan.  This update was led by City staff, City department heads, and field staff assigned to assist with the project. Staff was responsible for assessing, documenting, collecting, and organizing the self-evaluation from facility accessibility assessments, identifying existing deficiencies, creating a comprehensive barrier database and planning corrective actions.  The City also self-evaluated its policies, programs and procedures to determine current levels of service and the extent to which its policies and programs created barriers to accessibility for persons with disabilities.
