The ADA Transition Plan for Public Works (adopted 2020) is a supporting plan to the City’s ADA Action Plan.
The ADA Action Plan is managed and led by the City’s Neighborhood and Community Relations Department and is a comprehensive policy document for the City of Minneapolis to comply with Title II requirements of the ADA. The ADA Action Plan includes the Property Services ADA Plan, a complementary plan from the Finance and Property Services Department which addresses City-owned and leased properties, and the ADA Transition Plan for Public Works which addresses access to the City’s public right of way. Together, these three plans meet the Transition Plan requirements of the ADA.
The City of Minneapolis ADA Title II Coordinator is responsible for citywide ADA compliance. The Title II Coordinator works in the Neighborhood and Community Relations Department.
ADA Transition Plan for Public Works
Through a combination of the ADA Transition Plan for Public Works, the Minneapolis Transportation Action Plan, and the Vision Zero Action Plan, the City plans to address a variety of issues that impact the accessibility and safety of city streets and sidewalks. Through these plans, Public Works intends to lay out a series of priorities, policies and approaches to address barriers in the public right of way, including sidewalk gaps, complex intersections and obstacles inhibiting pedestrian movement, non-compliant sidewalks and/or driveways, and pedestrian curb ramp reconstructions.
