Frisco ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan
Kimley-Horn partnered with the City of Frisco to complete a self-evaluation and subsequent Transition Plan to ensure compliance with Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
In 2011, Kimley-Horn partnered with the City of Frisco to evaluate its policies, programs, and procedures to determine current levels of service and the extent to which its policies and programs created barriers to accessibility for persons with disabilities—and ultimately devise a Transition Plan when barriers to full participation are found.
Additionally, the Kimley-Horn team provided training for field crews, managed and scheduled the data collection for selected signalized intersections and arterial sidewalk corridors within the city (22 signalized intersections, 31 unsignalized intersections, approximately 4.5 miles of sidewalk), and managed all collected data and created cost estimate reports for these facilities. City programs, procedures, polices, three buildings, three parks, and their associated parking lots were also evaluated as part of this project.
Kimley-Horn was an active participant in the public workshop process in order to answer questions related to this project as well as general ADA requirements. The Transition Plan document was approved by the City Council in January 2014.
