The Coastal Conservancy works to ensure that all people have access to the coast, and to remove physical barriers that prevent people with disabilities from accessing the coast.
The Coastal Conservancy has produced a Draft Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan. The plan includes a review of documents and policies to ensure that people with disabilities have access to the programs and services offered and managed by the Conservancy, and evaluates and provides a plan to address physical barriers if they are found to be present in Coastal Conservancy properties. The plan includes opportunities for members of the public to provide ideas, concerns and comments.
