The Town finalized Phase 1 of the ADA Transition plan in 2021 with the Fiscal Year Budget Cycle, which provided $100,000 of funding every year for 10 years to make ADA improvements throughout the Town. The Town developed prioritization methodology for evaluating and implementing improvements based on the 2010 ADA Standards AND 2011 Proposed Accessibility Guidelines for Pedestrian Facilities in Public Right-of-Way (PROWAG).
Here’s what we are working on this fiscal year:
Improvements to Coventry Neighborhood: Existing sidewalk and curb ramps do not meet accessibility standards due to excessive cross slope, lack of truncated domes, and excessive cracking and separation at sidewalk joints. Sidewalk and curb ramps inside the public right-of-way will be remediated or replaced to bring into compliance.
Check back for other improvements with this years budget as items are identified! If you have an area that needs improvement, please contact customer service 704-455-5614
