Given the timeline already in play, the process seems to already be a bit behind. However, the necessary steps are outlined with clarity. Providing accessibility is not important to the conformance with ADA mandates, doing so meets universal design for public access for those individuals with certain disabilities not only those who are wheelchair-bound. Allowing freedom and access to public spaces is meant for ALL not only those who are bipedal ability. Moreover, such practical accessibility ensures individuals with other types of disabilities including sight, color-blindness, hearing, and perhaps mental impairments will retain access in accordance federal law. Granted Covid conditions have delayed to a degree progress in this endeavor, as such, the Draft and Final Transition Plan as outlines has not failed to capture needs of every citizen.
