ADA Action Plan and ADA Transition Plan for Public Works

The City of Minneapolis Public Works ADA Title II Coordinator is responsible for citywide ADA compliance. The Title II Coordinator works in the Neighborhood and Community Relations Department. Together with NCR's ADA Action Plan, Property Services' ADA Transition Plan, and the ADA Transition Plan for Public Works, the City meets the general requirements of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Public Works’ ADA Transition Plan Update

Through a combination of the ADA Transition Plan for Public Works and the Minneapolis Transportation Action Plan, the City plans to address a variety of issues that impact the accessibility of city streets and sidewalks. Through these two planning processes, 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.

The Public Works’ ADA Transition Plan update follows three steps:

  1. Self-Evaluation: The self-evaluation includes assessing policies, procedures, and physical infrastructure within the public right of way.
  2. Identify Areas for Improvement: The results of the self-evaluation are compared against ADA standards. Items that need improvement are identified.
  3. Implementation Plan: A plan of action to implement improvements is documented.

The Draft ADA Transition Plan is a culmination of these three steps.
