July 26, 2020 marks the 30th anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This year the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) is updating its ADA Title II Transition Plan for the public right-of-way and we want your feedback.
THE MAIN ITEMS IN AN ADA TITLE II TRANSITION PLAN ARE:
- Identification of transportation infrastructure like curb ramps, pedestrian signals, and sidewalks that aren’t fully compliant with ADA requirements
- a timeline to make modifications for compliance
- a process to submit an accessibility complaint to PBOT
- a person responsible for implementation of the plan
The plan will be released later this year in print and online.
We will be looking at the most effective and diverse ways to engage people throughout the city to talk about the plan, recognizing that in-person meetings may be limited or non-existent for the next several months. We want to engage as many people as possible. As part of that, we also want to attend existing meetings of interested people and organizations, even where these are virtual meetings. If you would like us to attend a meeting once the plan is released, please contact Lisa Strader, ADA Coordinator, Lisa.Strader@portlandoregon.gov.
