At the same time we are working on PedPDX, PBOT is also conducting an ADA Transition Plan, which includes strategy for barrier removal, curb ramp prioritization, review of published rules and regulations, and the development of internal guidance policy. The Plan will outline facilities, programs, and policy (changes and updates) that will ensure that all Portland residents with disabilities can take part and benefit from the programs and services that the City has to offer.
Components of both PedPDX and Portland’s ADA Transition Plan include a prioritization framework analysis informed by public engagement (for the ADA Transition Plan, it is embedded within the self-evaluation process). While public feedback will be sought for PedPDX from all parts of the city through a public involvement plan designed to advance social and racial equity and inclusion, partnering with the ADA Transition Plan offers advantages to depth and breadth of inclusion for both processes.
Stay tuned for more information about the City's ADA Transition Plan.
