ADA Transition Plans

ADA Transition Plans

CMAP staff has completed a Community Briefing Paper to assist local governments in improving accessibility by developing or updating their transition plans to address necessary physical improvements identified in a self-evaluation.  Accessible communities benefit more than just disabled residents.  Following accessibility guidelines in public rights-of-way improves access for everyone, thus improving community livability.
