ADA Transition Plan

In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Town of Beaufort completed and adopted an ADA Transition Plan in August 2022. This plan looks at barriers to accessibility and strategies to address a variety of issues that impact the accessibility of Town services, facilities, sidewalks and streets in the public right-of-way.
