In 1990, the Federal Government enacted the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA required all public organizations to adopt a Transition Plan identifying physical obstacles limiting access to programs, services and activities by persons with disabilities.
About the Plan
Concord adopted its ADA Transition Plan (PDF) in 1993 and its ADA Self Evaluation and Transition Plan Update (SETP) in 2009. City facilities, programs, services, policies, practices, and procedures were surveyed as part of the SETP. Public sidewalks, curb ramps, and pedestrian features of existing signalized intersections were added to the SETP. The City continues to review the SETP as new construction projects are identified and legal interpretation of the ADA occurs.
