ADA Evaluation and Transition Plan

The Town of Sudbury is updating our Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Self-Evaluation & Transition Plan. Under Title II of the ADA, the Town of Sudbury is required to complete a self-evaluation of the Town’s public facilities, programs, services, activities and events to determine compliance with the ADA and any barriers to accessibility. Once the Self-Evaluation is complete, the Town will develop a Transition Plan to prioritize the identified barriers and how they will be corrected. The Town has hired the Institute for Human Centered Design (IHCD) to assist with the self-evaluation process.

 

UPDATE 3/18/21: Community Input Survey
Town of Sudbury residents, members of organizations assisting persons with disabilities and Town staff are invited to complete a Community Input Survey which addresses accessibility of programs, services, activities and events offered to the public. Please see “Community Input Survey” section below for details. The survey is due by April 14, 2021.
