Mesquite, TX – October 16, 2020 – As part of formalizing an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan, the City of Mesquite is looking for the community to participate in an American with Disabilities Act (ADA) survey to address any specific concerns regarding accessibility or a need for reasonable accommodations at public meetings, in public facilities, within the public rights-of-way or other ADA-related issues. Beginning Oct. 19, the Spanish bilingual survey will be available online at www.cityofmesquite.com/ADA and printed versions will be available at City facilities. The deadline to submit a completed survey is Nov. 6.
Chris Sanchez, Assistant to the City Manager and the City’s ADA Coordinator said, “The City is using the results of this survey to look at the bigger picture. It will help us identify obstructions and obstacles for those in our community with disabilities.” Sanchez explained the survey results as well as an analysis of certain city facilities will be resources for the ADA Transition Plan, which will be presented to City Council in order to begin a process to plan and budget for improvements that will eliminate barriers.
The City recognizes its responsibility to comply with Title II of the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act and makes every reasonable effort to meet its legal obligations. For questions or additional information on the ADA survey, please contact the City at 972-216-6409.
