ADA Transition Plan
Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 prohibits all state and local governments from discriminating on the basis of disability.
This ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan establishes the City of Duvall’s ongoing commitment as an all-inclusive community to providing equal access for all, including those with disabilities. In developing this plan, the City of Duvall has undertaken a comprehensive evaluation of its right-of-way facilities and programs to determine what types of access barriers exist for individuals with disabilities. This plan will be used to help guide future planning and implementation of necessary accessibility improvements.
