This report provides background on the process and requirements the City of Fife is working to meet.
An important part of this plan is the development of a priority process. This document identifies priority elements with a view of each location of a curb ramp or signal push button, allowing for review of existing conditions and the data for prioritizing upgrades or corrections. That data will feed the city’s GIS (Geographic Information System), creating priority projects.
Array A outlines the technical priority areas that are the basis for the work in the more comprehensive system in the city’s GIS. Array B outlines what the final priorities might look like once priority is given to each project.
A notice of rights and available resources to all who may require city services to accommodate their needs.
An overview of responsibilities for the ADA Transition Plan within the City of Fife.
In the event of an unresolved issue, this is the process for a grievance.
An ADA Coordinator is required to keep requests and complaints as simple and straightforward as possible. Each department within the city is anticipated to have an ADA Liaison.
SCHEDULE, BUDGET AND MONITORING
A schedule and budget will be adopted with the completion of the priority system and will be updated annually. Progress monitoring is an outline of the process anticipated to provide accountability for the plan.
