Notice is hereby given that Blount County is conducting a Self-Evaluation of all county-owned facilities, public right-of-way, and programs for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Title II of the ADA requires that each of the county’s services, programs, and activities be readily accessible and usable by individuals with disabilities.  

Blount County is soliciting public input, especially from persons with disabilities, their caregivers, and disability advocates, on what barriers to access or use of county facilities or programs exist or are perceived to exist. This will also be an opportunity for the community to provide suggestions and comments on how to remove barriers. All comments will be reviewed and considered for inclusion in the self-evaluation and transition plan.

Public comments may be dropped off in writing or mailed to the Blount County Mayor’s office at the Blount County Courthouse located at 341 Court Street Maryville, TN 37804, during normal business hours or provided via email to dstallions@blounttn.org. Comments will be accepted until May 5th 2018.

Blount County complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Upon request, the county will provide written materials in appropriate alternative formats, or disability-related modification or accommodation, including auxiliary aids or services, to enable individuals with disabilities to participate in public input. Please send a written request, including your name, mailing address, phone number and brief description of the requested accommodation at least three (3) business days prior to the close of the comment period to the ADA Coordinator:
