Cabrillo National Monument announces the release of its Draft Accessibility Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan. The goal of this plan is to improve accessibility for visitors of all abilities.

The public is invited to review the draft and to submit comments over a 30-day period beginning August 10, 2018 and ending on September 9, 2018.

Self-evaluation and transition plans are intended to help parks identify their physical and programmatic obstacles to accessibility. Through the work of an interdisciplinary team that includes park and regional staff, the Monument identified key park experiences and evaluated all park areas, selected areas for assessment in the field, and completed accessibility assessments for each area. Implementation strategies were developed for improving the accessibility of services, activities, and programs at each location.

The Department of the Interior's guidance for implementing Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 requires parks to perform accessibility self-evaluations and to prepare transition plans. Under this authority, public entities are directed to evaluate their current programs, policies, and practices dealing with accessibility and to develop strategies for making the necessary changes to improve them.

Public input has been important to the planning process for the Monument, and it seeks public comments related to completion of this plan. For more information, please call (619) 557-5450 extension 4572.

At the conclusion of the comment period, comments received will be reconciled and a final plan will be prepared. An accessibility plan is expected to be in place in the next year.

The National Park Service values the public's interest in Cabrillo National Monument. We look forward to your continued feedback in this effort.
