ADA Transition Plan
The City of East Palo Alto, in keeping with its ongoing efforts to serve all members of the community, is updating its Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) transition plan and self-evaluation. The accessibility plan provides a comprehensive plan for access for individuals with disabilities to City facilities, parks, programs, services, activities, and events.

The City will use the ADA transition plan to determine where improvements can be made and how to incorporate the needed improvements into future projects. The plan will guide the planning and implementation of necessary program and facility modifications over the next several years. The ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan is significant in that it establishes the City's ongoing commitment to the development and maintenance of policies, programs, and facilities that include all of its citizenry. 

The City has completed the public input process for the ADA Transition Plan. A final plan has been created to help the City enhance accessibility to its facilities, programs, services, and events. The Executive Summary of the ADA Transition Plan is available for public review. An electronic copy of the Executive Summary can be downloaded (see links below). A paper copy is available for review during business hours at Community and Economic Development Department, 1960 Tate Street. Appendices that summarize the various sections of the Executive Summary can be downloaded (see links below). Any question or comments can be directed to the Engineering Division, 1960 Tate Street.
