ADA Transition Plan

Project Overview

Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 prohibits all state and local governments from discriminating on the basis of disability.

This ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan establishes the City of Tukwila’s ongoing commitment as an all-inclusive community to providing equal access for all, including those with disabilities. In developing this plan, the City of Tukwila has undertaken a comprehensive evaluation of its right-of-way facilities and programs to determine what types of access barriers exist for individuals with disabilities. This plan will be used to help guide future planning and implementation of necessary accessibility improvements.

 

Public Review

Tukwila’s Draft ADA Transition Plan documents are now available and hard copies are also available for viewing at Tukwila City Hall in the City Clerk’s office, the Permitting Center in Suite 100 of 6300 Southcenter Blvd, and the Tukwila Community Center. Alternate accessible formats will be made available upon request, including braille, large font, or audible versions. During the comment period, the Public, City Council, and staff are encouraged to take this opportunity to review and submit feedback on the documents. You can submit your comments with the form below.

At the end of the review period, revisions will be made as needed and a final version will be presented to Council for consideration. Transition Plans are designed as living documents and are intended to be updated.

Public comments and suggestions about the plan will be accepted now through March 31st, 2017.
