ADA Title II Transition Plan

In an effort to make all City of Portland facilities and programs accessible to all, the City has embarked on a comprehensive Transition Plan process. The Plan identifies barriers which impede access to City facilities that are open to the public.
 
City facilities were surveyed based on compliance with the current 2010 ADA (Americans With Disabilities Act) standards and include: identifying barriers, categorizing barriers (understanding which barrier removal will have the greatest access to a facility), and scheduling the removal of these barriers.
 
The City’s ADA Title II Transition Plan team surveyed 342 unique facilities, identified roughly 25,000 individual barriers, and has scheduled their removal over time.
 
A key element of this project is to engage the public and encourage public comment on the draft Transition Plan. There are several ways to get more information and provide comments:
