With the help of MTC, the City and County of Denver have completed an ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan, which included an assessment of facilities, parks, and website accessibility.
Each local government entity is required to operate each of its services, programs, and activities so that those programs, when viewed in their entirety, are readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities. Once Denver identified its policies and practices, MTC analyzed whether these policies and practices adversely affect the full participation of individuals with disabilities in its programs, activities, and services. In addition to reviewing, verifying, and revising all policies, procedures, and practices, Denver tasked MTC with surveying their City and County buildings, for identifying all architectural or physical barriers.
MTC then created a transition plan for all facilities which will continue to be utilized to document the status and progress of their barrier removal. For each data record collected, MTC provided an assessment of the level of importance of the recommended mitigation, along with the difficulty anticipated for implementing the recommendation. Based on an objective analysis of the data, the transition plan database assigned a suggested milestone date for mitigation.
