ADA Transition Plan

What is the ADA Transition Plan for Facilities in the Public Right-of-Way?
The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) went into effect on January 26, 1992. ADA requires that all facilities constructed after this date are readily accessible and usable by persons with disabilities.

The City of Auburn Transportation division is creating the City’s first ADA Transition Plan for facilities in the public right-of-way. This document will guide the process to reach full compliance with the ADA requirements for facilities in the public right-of-way.

The City of Auburn’s Draft ADA Transition Plan includes the following elements:

  • Overview and Background
  • Self-Evaluation
  • Policies and Procedures

Part of this effort includes a public comment period, with the draft plan available for review and comments. 

Tentative Schedule:
October 1, 2019: Draft ADA Plan available for public comment on City’s dedicated webpage
November 25, 2019: Council Discussion on Draft ADA Plan and related policies
December 31, 2019: End of public comment period
