COUNTY’S ADA TRANSITION PLAN AVAILABLE FOR PUBLIC REVIEW AND COMMENT

COUNTY’S ADA TRANSITION PLAN AVAILABLE FOR PUBLIC REVIEW AND COMMENT

Doña Ana County has completed a draft plan for its transition to substantial compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, as required by federal law. The draft plan is available on compact disk at the County Manager’s Complex at 180 W. Amador Ave.

In the works for more than a year, the draft plan sets out a timetable and project-priority list to bring Doña Ana County’s buildings, parks and programs into substantial compliance with ADA requirements. The volume of the draft report prompted ADA Coordinator Mary Amos to make copies available on computer disks as a money- and paper-saving strategy. There is no charge to the public for the disks.

A public meeting will be held from 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, May 27, in the Commission Chambers of the Doña Ana County Courthouse at 251 W. Amador Ave. to receive public comment on the transition plan. Comments also may be submitted in writing to the attention of Amos at 180 W. Amador Ave., Las Cruces, N.M., 88001.

For more information, call Amos at (505) 647-7316. Residents calling from outside the Las Cruces area may call toll-free at 1-877-827-7200 and request extension 7316.
