Draft Accessibility Self Evaluation and Transition Plan for North Cascades National Park Service Complex


North Cascades National Park Service Complex is seeking your input on a Draft Accessibility Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan. Your participation is important to our planning process.

The Accessibility Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan (SETP) includes findings from the self-evaluation process, as well as a plan for improving accessibility parkwide. The Accessibility Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan resulted from the work of a National Park Service (NPS) interdisciplinary team, including planning, design, and construction professionals; and interpretive, resource, visitor safety, maintenance, and accessibility specialists.
Site plans, photographs, and specific actions for identified park areas were developed. Associated time frames and implementation strategies were established to assist NPS park staff in scheduling and performing required actions and to document completed work. Park policies, practices, communication, and training needs were also addressed.

The goals of the plan are to:
1) document existing park barriers to accessibility for people with disabilities
2) provide an effective approach for upgrading facilities, services, and programs
3) instill a culture around creating universal access.

The evaluation identified areas where the park can improve accessibility of physical assets and facilities, as well as programming and digital resources. Moving forward, the park will use this plan as a guide to obtain funding and plan projects that will improve accessibility at North Cascades. All recommended actions will be subject to funding, consultation with other agencies and associated tribes, and compliance with other federal laws, such as the National Environmental Policy Act.

Your input on the draft plan will help us as we work to ensure that North Cascades National Park Service Complex is more accessible to all visitors. To review the draft plan and send electronic comments, click the links below:
