NOTICE OF HEARING
AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT (ADA)
TRANSITION PLAN FOR PUBLIC SIDEWALKS AND CITY RIGHTS-OF-WAY
FOR THE CITY OF MARSHALL
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), enacted on July 26, 1990, is a civil rights law prohibiting discrimination against individuals on the basis of disability. ADA consists of five titles outlining protections in the following areas:
- State and local government services
- Public accommodations
- Miscellaneous Provisions
Title II of ADA pertains to the programs, activities and services public entities provide. As a provider of public transportation services and programs, City of Marshall must comply with this section of the Act as it specifically applies to public service agencies. Title II of ADA provides that, “…no qualified individual with a disability shall, by reason of such disability, be excluded from participation in or be denied the benefits of the services, programs, or activities of a public entity, or be subjected to discrimination by any such entity.” (42 USC. Sec. 12132; 28 CFR. Sec. 35.130)
This document has been created to specifically cover accessibility within the public rights of way and does not include information on City of Marshall programs, practices, or building facilities not related to public rights of way.
As required by Title II of ADA, 28 CFR. Part 35 Sec. 35.105 and Sec. 35.150, the City of Marshall has conducted a self-evaluation of its public infrastructure within public rights of way and has developed this Transition Plan detailing how the organization will ensure that all of those facilities are accessible to all individuals. This document serves as a supplement to City of Marshall Comprehensive ADA Transition Plan covering buildings, services, programs and activities.
Please take notice that a public hearing will be held before the City Council at their meeting on Tuesday, August 11, 2020 at 4:00 PM at the MERIT Center located at 1001 West Erie Road in Marshall, Minnesota, to receive public input on the ADA Transition Plan.
