ADA Ideas? Tulsa residents are invited to a public workshop to comment on the City of Tulsa's Americans with Disabilities Act Self-Evaluation & Transition Plan. The meeting will be held 6-7:30pm Tuesday, Jan. 18, in the Center for Individuals with Physical Challenges gymnasium, 815 S. Utica Ave.
The meeting will include a presentation that explains the City of Tulsa's process over the past 10 months to perform a self-evaluation and update its transition plan for ADA compliance, and the current status of the project. Citizens are encouraged to comment about priorities for City of Tulsa compliance.
Tulsa's update of its ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan includes a citywide inventory of public facilities, programs and services to evaluate where modifications are needed for ADA compliance. The City will implement changes to remove accessibility barriers identified through the evaluation.
The City of Tulsa completed its original ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan in 1992. Since then, the city has experienced significant changes in population, physical size, streets, sidewalks and curb cuts, as well as added city facilities and programs.
These ADA requirements extend not only to physical access at City of Tulsa facilities, programs and events, but also to policy changes that governmental entities must make to ensure that all people with disabilities can take part in, and benefit from, the programs and services of the City of Tulsa.
