Phase: Assessing Self-Evaluation Inventory/Plan Preparation
Overview and History
Under Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a public entity is required to perform a self-evaluation of its current services, policies, and practices for ADA compliance. The self-evaluation includes surveying the existing facilities and determining the compliance of those facilities.
Since the City of Shoreline has more than 50 employees, it is required to create and implement a Transition Plan for structural changes to those facilities. The self-evaluation and Transition Plan includes facilities within the rights-of-way, as well as sites and building facilities owned by the public entity. For this project, the facilities surveyed were mainly within the road right-of-way:
- Curb Ramps
- Pedestrian Signals
- Pedestrian Crossings
As part of the assessment of the self-evaluation inventory, a public Open House will be held to present the initial results of the assessment during which feedback will be collected from the public.
The primary goal of the Transition Plan is to provide a path to doing structural changes by removing barriers or deficiencies to the various pedestrian facilities in the City. Another goal is to supplement the annual maintenance program which will maintain accessibility for all residents.The Sidewalk Advisory Committee (SAC) created a video about one of the existing sidewalks in Shoreline. This current condition of most of the City’s sidewalks is also driving the creation of the Transition Plan.
