In 2017, the City of Punta Gorda, Florida adopted its current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan. This plan contains an analysis of City facilities and public services to catalog existing compliance decencies and identify corrective actions. The goal of this plan is to bring all City facilities and programs into full compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Florida Accessibility Code.
Based on the recommendations contained in the ADA Transition Plan the City of Punta Gorda has undertaken a five year capital improvement program (CIP). The ADA Transition Plan CIP provides a dedicated funding source for undertaking the corrective actions recommended by the ADA Transition Plan. In addition to the CIP projects the City has already taken many steps to bring processes, programs and services into full compliance with ADA requirements.
The City is committed to having all of City buildings, parks, parking, pedestrian facilities, programs, and services remedied so all of the accessibility deficiencies are corrected and compliant with all applicable Federal and State requirements.
