Local and State Government ADA Compliance can be broken down into two areas of focus: County Right of Way and Facilities
Transportation Division: County Right of Way (roadways, curbs, and ramps)
El Dorado County - Transportation Division is thoroughly committed to making all areas within the County right of way accessible to all pedestrians including those with disabilities. The ADA requires all public agencies to develop an ADA Transition Plan for the installation of curb ramps or other sloped areas at all locations where walkways cross curbs on County maintained roadways. To this end, Transportation has developed a Draft Preliminary Transition Plan to upgrade curbs and ramps within the County right-of-way. The Draft Plan is available for public review and can be found by clicking on “Documents and Plans.”
Facilities (physical access to El Dorado County facilities)
In accordance with the requirements of Title II of the ADA, El Dorado County will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability in its services, programs, activities, or facilities. Compliance for County owned or maintained facilities, such as buildings, are being addressed by the County Facilities Department.
