The city is asking public participation for its Americans With Disabilities Act transition plan.
This proposed draft would allow the City to update its current ADA policies and pursue further compliance with ADA regulations, according to a statement released earlier today. As ADA compliance is a major part of the Map for Mobile planning process, the City is conducting a public outreach campaign to ensure that as many citizens as possible, especially the disabled community, are given the ability to voice their concerns in the creation of this draft of the transition plan. The City is encouraging the public to submit comments or concerns through June 21.
“In order to truly realize One Mobile, we must ensure our entire city is accessible to every citizen and guest,” Stimpson said in the statement. “This update to our ADA Compliance Plan will prioritize the necessary funding and services that are crucial in continuing our long-standing commitment to full accessibility and complete ADA compliance.”
The city hopes the project will continue inventory of city facilities, programs, and rights-of-way and incorporate the inventory findings into the city’s annual capital funding commitment to addressing infrastructure gaps, according to the statement. In addition, the city hopes to continue to pursue grants in order to repair infrastructure and City facilities in the pursuit of full ADA compliance while making City services fully accessible to all visitors and citizens.
