ADA Transition Plan

About the Project


As required by Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and 28 CFR 35.105, the City is developed a Transition Plan to improve accessibility to pedestrian facilities within the City’s jurisdiction.  As part of this effort, the City has retained an engineering consultant, Alfred Benesch & Co., to assist City staff in developing the ADA Transition Plan.  

The City has developed a process for creating and implementing the Transition Plan.  The first step in this process is to conduct self-evaluation by inventorying and assessing existing pedestrian facilities to identify access barriers to persons with disabilities within the public Right-of-Way. The inventory will assess pedestrian facilities along roadways, primarily sidewalks and curb ramps, to document what facilities are present and in compliance with the applicable standards or are needing to be constructed or improved to be compliant. Part of the self-evaluation process includes a public outreach program to gain public input on and help identify particular existing areas of concern. Public meetings will be conducted and user surveys will be distributed to provide information and solicit input.  


The self-evaluation findings will provide the framework for developing the City’s ADA Transition Plan.  Besides identifying the results of the self-evaluation, the Transition Plan will prioritize addressing the identified existing barriers and identify strategies for addressing them.  It will also provide standards and guidelines for future improvements to the pedestrian network within the City’s public Right-of-Ways.
