The purpose of this ADA Transition Plan is to ensure that the City of Albany pedestrian infrastructure in the public right-of-way is accessible for everyone, including people with disabilities. The City has made a significant and long-term commitment to improving the accessibility of pedestrian facilities in the public-right-of-way.
The City has identified and evaluated all pedestrian infrastructure in the public right-of-way including curb ramps, sidewalks, crosswalks, pedestrian signals, pedestrian accessible transit stops, as well as city-owned multi-use trails that are paved.
Providing equal access for people with disabilities is essential to the City of Albany. The ADA Coordinator is responsible for overseeing ADA implementation and compliance efforts. The City of Albany continues to actively work on providing equal access for people with disabilities and comply with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA).
The Notice of ADA rules, Grievance Procedure and ADA Complaint Form can be accessed via the links below as well as at the Department of Human Resources in City Hall in Room 301.
