ADA Transition Plan Online Survey and Public Meeting

In an effort to make the Town of Huntersville’s public facilities accessible to all, the Town is in engaged in developing an American with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan for the Town’s public facilities. The ADA Transition Plan for public facilities demonstrates the Town of Huntersville’s commitment to providing equal access to all of its public programs, services, facilities, and activities for citizens with disabilities.

The Plan is intended to identify physical obstacles that limit the accessibility of facilities to individuals with disabilities, describe the methods to be used to make the facilities accessible, provide a schedule for making modifications to better provide access and identify parties responsible for implementation of the Transition Plan.

How to provide input:

The ADA Transition Plan process is currently underway and the Town would like to hear your comments and concerns regarding accessibility of Town facilities as part of the development and prioritization of the ADA Transition Plan.

Public Meeting – A public meeting will be held Monday , May 10 at 4:00 p.m. at Huntersville Town Hall to discuss the ADA Transition Plan and feedback received thus far.

Citizen Survey - Please take a few minutes to complete a brief survey to share your observations and concerns regarding accessibility of the public facilities within the Town of Huntersville as it will help us prioritize our ADA improvements.

The Town is looking for input from: 

  • People with disabilities – the Town is seeking representatives for a variety of disabilities
  • Senior citizens; 
  • Other individuals and members of groups that encounter barriers related to transportation, such as parents of children with disabilities;
  • People with experience and knowledge of ADA planning and requirements or also serve disabled populations; 
  • Interested Town of Huntersville residents.
