The project scope included review of the City’s programs, policies, and practices. Program access was also evaluated, based on management interviews, a staff ADA knowledge survey, and a technical audit and user testing of the City’s website. 

MTC collected accessibility data for the City’s buildings, parks and recreation facilities, and pedestrian facilities in public rights-of-way. The scope included 24 City buildings, 113 parks and recreation facilities, 796 miles of sidewalks, and 10,894 curb ramps. Our team’s duties included administration of ArcGIS Online environment including the configuration and performance monitoring of ArcGIS Collector and Survey123 mobile data collection and ADA inspection applications. We provided the client with bi-weekly progress maps that communicated the number of total inspections, miles of sidewalk inspected and overall project status. 

An ADA Transition Plan was completed through collaborative efforts of MTC and the City staff. MTC worked with the City’s Public Information Office to facilitate virtual and in-person public meetings. The draft Transition Plan was also published on the City’s website for public comment. Public comments were documented in the final Transition Plan presented to City Council.
