Duarte Seeking Resident Input in ADA/Accessibility Transition Survey

The City of Duarte is in the process of updating its Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) self-evaluation and transition plan. In order to best serve those in our community with disabilities, the City would like residents to submit input on the accessibility of public programs, services, activities and buildings.

“In the 2010 Census, 20 percent of Duarte residents reported being 65 or older. We expect to see increased numbers in the 2020 Census data,” said Assistant City Manager Kristen Petersen. “We need to plan for the City’s growth by including older adults and people with disabilities in our conversations so we can learn how to better serve our community.”

The survey will go live on Monday, February 1, on the City’s website and will be available in both English and Spanish.

The City hopes that, with the help of residents, we can make Duarte readily accessible to everyone in our community.

“We are committed to serving all members of our community by providing fair and equal access to City services and programs,” said Mayor Bryan Urias. “Your voice and experience are needed and valuable to the City’s ADA Transition Plan in ensuring that we uphold these commitments to serve all Duarteans.”

You can take the surveys online (available in English and Spanish) until March 31, 2021:
