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.
