Public Works American with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan


Public Works’ ADA Transition Plan

The City of Minneapolis Public Works ADA Transition Plan was last updated in 2012. The plan can be accessed here.

Since the plan was released in 2012, a number of significant policy and practices have been adopted or updated. These include:


ADA Transition Plan and the ADA Action Plan    

The City of Minneapolis ADA Title II Coordinator is responsible for Citywide ADA compliance. The Title II Coordinator works for the Neighborhood and Community Relations Department. Together with NCR’s ADA Action Plan, Building Facilities’ ADA Facilities Compliance Plan, and Public Works’ ADA Transition Plan, the City meets the general requirements of Title II of the American Disabilities Act (ADA).

ADA Transition Plan Update

Public Works plans to work on an update to the Transition Plan in 2017.

Through a combination of the update to the ADA Transition Plan and the update to the Access Minneapolis Pedestrian Master Plan, which will also be updated in the near future, the City plans to address a variety of issues that impact the accessibility of city streets and sidewalks. In particular, through these two planning processes, Public Works intends to lay out a series of priorities, policies and approaches to address barriers in the public realm, including sidewalk gaps, complex intersections, obstacles inhibiting pedestrian movement, non-compliant sidewalks and/or driveways, curb ramp reconstructions and snow clearance.

More details about the plan update will be posted to this website as they become available.
