ACCESSIBILITY SELF-EVALUATION AND TRANSITION PLAN
Denise Bausch 509-754-7830
Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area's Accessibility Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan (SETP) includes findings from the self-evaluation process, as well as a plan for improving accessibility parkwide. The SETP resulted from the work of an 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 accomplishing work in identified park areas were developed. Associated time frames and implementation strategies were established to assist NPS staff in scheduling and performing required actions and to document work as it is completed. Park policies, practices, communication, and training needs were also addressed. The goals of the SETP are to 1) document existing park barriers to accessibility for people with disabilities; 2) provide an effective approach for upgrading facilities, services, activities, and programs and 3) instill a culture around creating universal access.
