Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan
for Public Rights-Of-Way (ROW)
Marion County Public Works, with assistance from consulting firm Murraysmith and an ADA Focus Group composed of community stakeholders, has completed the Final Americans with Disabilities Act Transition Plan for Accessibility in Public Rights-of-Way and associated Administrative Procedure 304-C Rights-of-Way, which address ADA accessibility to sidewalks, curb ramps, signalized intersections and related services within county road rights-of-way. The plan focuses on the county's existing inventory and establishes a methodology for prioritization of future rights-of-way improvements to facilities accessible by the public.
The Final ADA plan and 304-C procedure were adopted by the Marion County Board of Commissioners at a regular Board Session on May 25, 2022.
The Americans with Disabilities Act also requires that we make a Request for Accommodation and a Grievance procedure available to the public. Marion County Public Works, in conjunction with Marion County Business Services and Risk Management, have completed required revisions to existing County ADA Administrative Policy 304 and Procedures 304-A and -B (click here to view) as well as establishing a new 304-C Rights-of-Way Grievance Procedure. Copies of the new procedure and forms are included in the Plan and can be found individually below.
