With the goal of making sure people with disabilities have the same opportunities, Humboldt County remains committed to ensure access to all of its programs, services and activities. The County is looking for public input on its county-wide ADA Compliance Plan and the specific ADA Compliance Plan for County Maintained Roads.
The two draft plans and survey is available on the county website. The survey is open until November 11.
The combined effort of county staff over the last four years has resulted in proposed renovations and new construction projects for county facilities and roadways that meet current and future needs.
The County of Humboldt is subject to Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which addresses all programs, services and activities offered to the public, and Title I which addresses employment activities.
To fulfill the ADA mandates under Title II, the County conducted a Self-Evaluation and developed Compliance Plan that assists in identifying policy, program, and architectural barriers to accessibility. It also provides guidance in developing solutions to remove barriers and ease access to services for all individuals.
The ADA Compliance Plan for County Maintained Roads provides for the completion of improvements in the Department of Justice Consent Decree that remain uncompleted as the Consent Decree expired, March 13, 2020. This includes curb ramps, access to County facilities from the nearest accessible parking stall and from the nearest bus stop within a 0.5 mile walking path of County programs, services and activities; and provides a protocol to address requests to remove barriers to access on County maintained roads.
