Public Comment Requested on Draft ADA Transition Plan for Public Works

The City of Minneapolis Government is seeking comments through Dec. 27 on the draft ADA Transition Plan for Public Works – a plan that identifies priorities for removing accessibility barriers in the City’s public right of way.

The draft ADA Transition Plan identifies and outlines recommendations for four types of infrastructure that impact accessibility for people walking or rolling in the public right of way: pedestrian curb ramps, accessible pedestrian signal systems, sidewalks and street crossings.

Following the comment period, staff will review feedback and will bring a revised ADA Transition Plan for Public Works to the City Council for consideration in early 2020.

Read the full draft here: http://www.minneapolismn.gov/www/groups/public/@publicworks/documents/webcontent/wcmsp-221601.pdf

Over the past year, City planners have been doing a lot of listening about the future of Minneapolis. One theme we’ve heard is that everyone must benefit from a growing city. Done right, population growth can help our city become a healthy, sustainable, and thriving place for all. We have some ideas on how to achieve that, and would like to hear your thoughts.

We want to hear from you!
