The St. Johns County Transition Plan is required to be updated periodically and includes the following information:
- Facility or element that contains an obstacle to ADA compliance
- Necessary modifications needed in order to achieve compliance
- Estimated timeline for modifications, from securing funding to project completion
- Identifying the department responsible for the facility or element
- Date at which compliance is achieved
