The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has enacted a requirement that all local agencies with greater than 50 employees or who are slated to receive federal funding included in the 2019-2022 Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) must develop and adopt an ADA Transition Plan or be substantially working towards completion of the plan. If the local agency does not have their Transition Plan completed or in progress, the agency risks losing federal funding for transportation projects.
Each agency is required to complete a self-evaluation/survey of its facilities, policies and practices as it relates to the requirements set forth in The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Repair or replacement of deficient facilities must be noted and addressed in a formal transition plan.
This document has been created to specifically cover accessibility within the public rights of way and does not include information on the City of Glencoe’s programs, practices, or building facilities not related to public rights of way.
The draft City of Glencoe ADA Transition Plan is available below. Hard copies of the draft are also available at Glencoe City Center.
PUBLIC MEETING: A Public Meeting for the transition plan will be held on Monday, November 2, 2020 at 7:05 p.m. at the Glencoe City Council meeting at the Glencoe City Center.
COMMENTS AND RECOMMENDATIONS: The City is seeking public comment through 5:00 p.m., Friday, November 13, 2020.
Any comments should be directed to Mark Larson.
