MetroPlan Orlando addresses issues of equality in transportation planning through its nondiscrimination and language plans. We have an active community outreach program that provides opportunities for all Central Floridians to be involved in the transportation planning process regardless of race, color, creed, national origin or ability.
If you have questions about equality in the process, please consult the plans below or contact our Title VI coordinator/public information manager, Cynthia Lambert, at 407-481-5672 x320 or CLambert@metroplanorlando.org.
TITLE VI NONDISCRIMINATION PLAN
Through MetroPlan Orlando’s Title VI Nondiscrimination Plan, we adhere to the provisions of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination in any program receiving federal assistance, and relevant provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), if any person with a disability as defined by the ADA needs special accommodations to participate in our public meetings, he or she should contact MetroPlan Orlando, 250 S. Orange Ave., Suite 200, Orlando, Florida, 32801 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone at (407) 481-5672 at least three business days prior to the event.
In the plan, you’ll find a nondiscrimination policy and complaint processing procedure. It also includes a demographic profile of Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties to ensure that planning products analyze, mitigate, minimize or avoid disproportionate and adverse impacts on identified minority or low income communities.
LIMITED ENGLISH PROFICIENCY PLAN
MetroPlan Orlando must also provide meaningful access to programs, services and activities to individuals with limited English proficiency. The Limited English Proficiency Plan outlines MetroPlan Orlando’s accommodations for non-English speakers.
Persons who require alternative language services, which are provided at no cost, should contact MetroPlan Orlando at (407) 481.5672 or by email at email@example.com at least three business days prior to the event.
