ADA Transition Plan

ADA Transition Plan, Adopted July 2014

The ADA Transition Plan for Public Rights-of-Way documents the legal and functional goals and objectives of the Town of Mammoth Lakes in order to make existing pedestrian facilities within the public right-of-way accessible and usable for persons with disabilities. The ADA Transition Plan has been prepared pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which requires that all public agencies develop a transition plan for the installation of curb ramps or other sloped areas at all locations where walkways cross curbs. The plan is required to give a schedule for curb ramp installation, as well as describing other improvements necessary to achieve programmatic accessibility for persons with disabilities. The main purpose of this transition plan is to describe the curb ramp and pedestrian facility needs within the Town of Mammoth Lakes and to outline the recommended procedures for implementing and scheduling remedial work to provide a complying system of curb ramps, sidewalks, and related facilities within the public right-of-way.

The ADA Transition Plan is one component of a larger project intended to optimize the pedestrian experience; provide safe and usable pedestrian facilities for all pedestrians, and; assure compliance with all federal, state, and local regulations and standards. Other components of this project include the Pedestrian Master Plan and General Bikeway Plan.
