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.
January 2020: review of public comments – drafting of the Final ADA Plan.
April 2020: Adoption of Final ADA Plan and related policies.

Public Comment:
The public comment period is now closed. The draft ADA Transition Plan is now being updated for the final version. The final document will be available in April 2020.
