In 2015, an ADA study was conducted by a consultant for the City. The report identified infrastructure that does not meet ADA standards. As identified in the report, the City has been developed with various ADA sidewalk standards over the years, and these ramps must be upgraded to current standards to comply with state & federal guidelines. Furthermore, in this ADA study, sidewalk lifts and grade problems that have been identified in the City for repair.
The project involves negligible or no expansion of an existing use. Existing highways and streets, sidewalks, gutters, bicycle and pedestrian trails, and similar facilities (this includes road grading for the purpose of public safety) are examples of an existing use.
