The El Cerrito City Council adopted the City's Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan on September 21, 2009. The City pursued the development of an ADA Transition Plan to ensure accessibility for individuals with disabilities in the community. The City examined City buildings, parks, and major pedestrian routes in the public right of way and identified physical barriers to accessibility. The Plan assesses these barriers, estimates the costs for their mitigation, sets priorities for their elimination, and provides a schedule for their removal.
The ADA Transition Plan is available for public review. An electronic copy of the ADA Transition Plan can be downloaded (see links below). A paper copy is available for review during business hours at City Hall, 10890 San Pablo Avenue or the El Cerrito Library, 6510 Stockton Avenue. As indicated in the plan, the City Engineer/ Public Works Director has establish an ADA Advisory Group to provide advice and guidance in the planning, prioritization and coordination of accessibility-related improvement projects in the public rights-of-way. The first meeting of the ADA Advisory Group was held on March 8, 2010. If you are interested in being part of this group or learning more about the discussion at the first meeting, please read below.
