Public Hearing Regarding ADA Transition Plan

Staff & the City Engineer of Record 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.

The Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan are part of the City of Virginia’s overall efforts to address accessibility throughout the City of Virginia.
