ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan

The City of St. Louis has developed an ADA Transition Plan to address barriers to accessibility in the public right-of-way and City owned property including buildings, properties, and parks.

Overview

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires all state and local governments with more than 50 employees to prepare a self-evaluation and transition plan. A self-evaluation is a review to identify all barriers to access, both physical and programmatic. The physical self-evaluation includes both pedestrian facilities on public rights-of-way and City owned property including buildings, properties, and park. The transition plan is a schedule and plan for the elimination of these barriers to access. The City has been actively improving accessibility for all residents for the past 45 years and this Plan will combine these past efforts and help guide future improvements moving forward.
