The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 outlaws discrimination against people with disabilities in all areas of public life.
Title II of the ADA mandates Pierce County to develop a Self-Evaluation Report (28 CFR § 35.105) and an ADA Transition Plan (28 CFR § 35.150). These two documents support making pedestrian facilities comply with the ADA. Both focus on county-owned facilities within the road right-of-way in unincorporated Pierce County.
The Self-Evaluation Report looks at county policies and whether existing pedestrian facilities located in the public right-of-way comply with the ADA.
The ADA Transition Plan outlines how Pierce County will update these pedestrian facilities to comply with the ADA.
