ADA Consultant Selection Team

Atlantic County NJ’s Office of Disability Services is spearheading a countywide project auditing the disabled access of the county’s roadways, buildings, programs, services and policies. This complete analysis is a requirement of local governments under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. As guided by this federal law, Atlantic County is following the ADA’s foundation of ‘a promise of equal access to opportunity for all citizens’.

The Transition Plan team, as directed by the county’s ADA Coordinator, consists of 11 committee members. Representatives from all departments of county government and the disability advisory board have been chosen to take part in the process.   The team is in the final stages of choosing a reputable consulting firm to guide this policy plan.
