In 1990, the federal government adopted the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This legislation required every state and local government to either:
- Demonstrate that their facilities that provide space for programs, services, and activities were fully compliant with existing federal and state access requirements, or
- Develop a plan to address barriers to access by preparing an ADA Self-evaluation and Transition Plan for physical facilities and the policies or practices that require revisions.
In 2019, the Fresno City Council approved the FAX ADA Transition Plan, which identifies remediation of barriers to access for people with disabilities, and an Implementation Schedule. The plan is intended to ensure that FAX remains in compliance with the ADA by scheduling the remediation of barriers to access over time until a point at which remediation is completed. Future updates will provide an updated schedule for remediation.
Public outreach was conducted in 2019. Here is a presentation of the draft plan at virtual meetings. Here is the written transcript of the presentation at the DAC Transportation Subcommittee, and the Audio and Visual Transcript.
