The City of Marshalltown ADA Transition Plan & Inventory for Public Rights-of-Way Public Open House

Logo

The City of Marshalltown is hosting a public open house at the Marshalltown Public Library on August 22, 2019 from 5pm to 7pm to solicit public feedback on the City of Marshalltown ADA Transition Plan and Inventory. Please attend to the open house to provide your input on the process and assist project staff with the identification of barriers to accessibility within the City of Marshalltown’s pedestrian infrastructure system.


The City of Marshalltown is performing a Self-Evaluation of the policies, practices and pedestrian infrastructure within public rights-of-way to identify ADA deficiencies that pose barriers to safe and efficient access for all users. The evaluation began May 2019 and is nearly completed. The results of the evaluation will be included in the City of Marshalltown ADA Transition Plan that will provide a plan and schedule for the removal of accessibility barriers within public rights-of-way.


The City encourages all residents, especially individuals with short- or long-term disabilities, or groups representing individuals with disabilities, to attend the open house for an opportunity to advise project staff on locations that pose barriers to accessibility in the community. 


For more information, or if you are in need of special accommodations to attend the meeting, contact Matt Lassonde at 507-625-4171 ext. 3136 or matthew.lassonde@bolton-menk.com. You can also visit the project website at https://clients.bolton-menk.com/marshalltownada/ for project updates, materials, and notifications for upcoming meetings as well as opportunities to comment on the Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan.
