Orange County Government is developing the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan for the Public Rights-of-Way locally, otherwise known as the ADA Transition Plan.
The ADA Transition Plan will ensure that public infrastructure in the region is accessible for all. The plan will change and maintain sidewalks, curb ramps, street crossings, crosswalks, driveway crossings and pedestrian activated traffic signal systems according to the ADA design standards.
You can be involved and have input on the ADA Transition Plan by clicking here.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 is a civil rights statute that prohibits discrimination against those with disabilities. Under Title II - Public Services of the ADA, transportation facilities in the public rights-of- way and pedestrian facilities must be accessible to those with disabilities. Orange County Public Works is responsible for managing pedestrian facilities throughout County maintained rights-of-way, see the brochure Providing Mobility for all.
Public involvement is a vital component to the ADA Transition Plan and will ensure that the plan responds to and meets the needs of the community. There are multiple avenues for community involvement, including public meetings, Disability Advisory Board Meetings, and the ability to send e-mail and written comments.
