Cary ADA Transition Plan

Project Background

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 is a civil rights statute that prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities. There are five separate Titles (or sections) of the Act relating to different aspects of potential discrimination. Title II specifically addresses the subject of making public services accessible to those with disabilities.

The Cary’s ADA Transition Plan contains a checklist for each facility, park, and greenway. Each checklist identifies each barrier and recommends a resolution for its removal. Any of the facility, park, and greenway checklists are available upon request.

Project Scope

Cary strives to assure that all provided services and programs are accessible. A majority of Cary’s facilities have been designed, built, and renovated to comply with federal and state accessibility code requirements since 1990. However, since some facilities may have barriers that could limit full accessibility, a consultant was hired in June 2015 to develop the Town's ADA Transition Plan which will enable the removal of the identified barriers.

Schedule

  • Facility Audits: Completed Summer 2015 through Spring 2016
  • Open House Public Meeting: Completed Monday, April 25, 2016 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm in the Maple Room, Bond Park Community Center.  For this meeting, GoCary provided a Fixed Route drop off at the Bond Park Community Center at a half rate charge and GoCary Door-to-Door registered clients could reserve their trip directly to and from the meeting by calling 919-481-2020, Extension #3.
  • Town ADA Transition Plan Completed: Completed Fall 2016

Budget

The consultant fee to develop the ADA Transition Plan totalled $106,280. The costs to remove the barriers prioritized in the ADA Transition Plan will be budgeted annually in the Town’s Capital Improvement Plan.
