Americans with Disabilities Act symbolsAmericans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

The Town of Leesburg prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in its services, programs, accessibility and activities. We support the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and attempt to provide access to our services and programs. Upon request, reasonable accommodations will be made, if accommodations do not fundamentally alter the nature of the program or service or impose an undue financial burden.


 ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan

DAC employee surveying sidewalkUnder Title II of the ADA, the Town is required to complete a self-evaluation of the Town's public facilities, programs, and activities to determine compliance with the ADA and any barriers to accessibility. Once the self-evaluation is complete, the Town will develop a transition plan to prioritize the identified barriers and how they will be corrected. The Town has hired Disability Access Consultants (DAC) to assist with the self-evaluation and transition plan process. DAC employees are currently working throughout the Town, surveying sidewalks, public rights-of-way, and public facilities. The survey work is expected to completed in late September.

If you have any questions about the self-evaluation and transition plan, please contact Kate Trask, the Town's ADA Coordinator, at ktrask@leesburgva.gov or 703-737-7144.

As part of the self-evaluation, the Town is seeking public feedback regarding accessibility of Town facilities, programs, and activities and how Town staff have responded to requests for accommodation. If you would like to provide feedback, the online survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and may be submitted anonymously:
