The City of Albany is in the process of developing a comprehensive Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan (SETP). Once complete, the plan will guide the City in making Albany’s facilities, parks and public right-of-way accessible to all. This includes all public programs, services, facilities, and activities.

The self-evaluation and transition plan associated with the public right-of-way (ROW) is complete and was presented to the City Council on January 11, 2023. The ROW transition plan guides the City in making the public right-of-way accessible to all. Work is ongoing on the comprehensive cityside SETP, which is anticipated to be completed in December 2023.

Project tasks and schedule for Parks & Recreation and citywide facilities

The plan's development includes the following phases:

Phase 1

Phase 1:

Project Initiation, Management, and On-Going Communication

The City of Albany initiated the project in January of 2022. An ADA Advisory Group was formed as part of the Public Works ADA planning process to provide insights throughout all phases of the planning process. The group members from the Public Works process have been asked to participate in this planning effort, and the City anticipates that new group members will be enlisted as part of this comprehensive planning effort. This group will meet three times during the project. The first meeting with the ADA Advisory Group is anticipated to be held in June 2022. The second and third ADA Advisory Group meets are expected to occur in the Summer and Fall.

Once completed, the plan will include:

  • The methodology employed for plan development;
  • Public outreach process for plan development;
  • Prioritization and scheduling process;
  • Recommendations for modifications to policies, services, and practices;
  • Transition plan phasing schedule and barrier removal priorities; and
  • Program accessibility guidelines, standards, and resources.
