WE NEED YOUR INPUT!
Access to civic life by people with disabilities is a fundamental goal of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). To ensure that this goal is met, Title II of the ADA requires State and local governments to make their programs and services accessible to persons with disabilities. This requirement extends not only to physical access at government facilities, programs, and events -- but also to policy changes that governmental entities must make to ensure that all people with disabilities can take part in, and benefit from, the programs and services of State and local governments. In addition, governmental entities must ensure effective communication -- including the provision of necessary auxiliary aids and services -- so that individuals with disabilities can participate in civic life.
As required by Title II of the ADA, the City of Mill Valley is conducting a self-evaluation of its facilities and updating the Transition Plan. This update is an important step in the ultimate goal of ensuring all of the Cities facilities, services, programs and activities are accessible to all individuals.
As part of this process, we are requesting public input in the form of a survey. This survey is available as a link surveymonkey.com/s/BMW2MQJ that can be completed and submitted digitally, or printed out and submitted as a hard copy.
In addition to the City of Mill Valley website this link may be available through the following organizations:
