The City is required, under Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and 28 CFR 35.105, to perform a self-evaluation of its current transportation infrastructure policies, practices, and programs. Part 2 of the City of Beaverton’s self-evaluation and transition plan will identify what policies and practices impact accessibility and examine how the City implements these policies. The goal of the self-evaluation is to verify that, in implementing the City’s policies and practices, the department is providing accessibility and not adversely affecting the full participation of individuals with disabilities.
Title II requires state and local governments to make pedestrian facilities within the public right-of-way accessible for people with disabilities. Accessible pedestrian facilities within the public right-of-way enable people with disabilities to reach their desired destinations and to enjoy the benefits of City services, programs, and activities.
Other agencies are also responsible for pedestrian facilities within the jurisdiction of the City, including federal, state and county. The City coordinates with these agencies to the extent reasonably possible to assist in the facilitation of the elimination of accessibility barriers along their routes.
