Description

SEDA-COG has partnered with PennDOT to provide municipal officials with free training through the Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP).  Upcoming courses include the following:
 
ADA Transition Plans and Self Evaluations
East Buffalo Township Building, Lewisburg
 
The American with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires all public entities to have a transition plan or self-evaluation in place. The purpose of the plan is to identify existing barriers to access for programs, services, and facilities in the public right-of-way and how the municipality will mitigate those barriers. This course will provide municipalities with the background information and tools necessary to create an ADA-compliant transition plan or self-evaluation. The plan is a valuable tool to improve accessibility, program future activities, create reasonable priorities, and ward off litigation. The course objectives are: Review the ADA laws and regulations for transition plans/self evaluations; Examine the components of an ADA transition plan/self evaluation; and Develop the ability to create a transition plans/self evaluation through workshops and exercises. The course will be helpful to officials responsible for complying with the ADA, developing a plan, inspecting facilities, and creating ADA-compliant documents and procedures.
 
The intended audience includes local government officials responsible for complying with the ADA. This includes municipal managers, elected officials, ADA coordinators, public works directors, roadmasters, and code enforcement officers.
