Placer County seeking public input at upcoming Americans with Disabilities Act open houses, online surveys

Published on May 08, 2018

Placer County will host open house meetings in May to seek input as it continues working to update its plan to provide access to county facilities and services. Three public meetings are planned: May 22 in North Auburn, May 23 in Kings Beach, and May 24 in Rocklin.

The county is currently developing an Americans with Disabilities Act self-evaluation and transition plan, taking a comprehensive look at its programs, services and facilities for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act; including county-owned buildings, facilities, parks, trails, sidewalks, bus stops and curb ramps.

Open House details:

In addition to the open house meetings, the county has also launched an online evaluation survey. Hard copies of the survey, in regular and large font and braille, are available upon request.
