ADA Transition Plan

The City of Lakeland is developing an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan.  While the Transition Plan will ultimately include all City programs, services, and activities, the initial Transition Plan is focused on pedestrian facilities within the Public Rights-of-Way.  Public meetings were held on January 9, 2017 offering interested persons, including individuals with disabilities or organizations representing individuals with disabilities, the opportunity to participate in the development of this transition plan.  A flyer is linked here.

The meetings were held at our Lakeland Publc Library, 100 Lake Morton Drive Lakeland, FL 33801 at 10 am and 5:30 pm.

Citizens are welcome to view a draft copy of the  linked below.   If individuals require paper copies or alternative formats of the draft plan, please contact the City’s ADA Coordinator. Additional comments or specific recommendations for modifications to City facilities, programs, services, and activities should also be submitted to the City’s ADA Coordinator,
