Saint Peter City Council members will consider embarking on a 28-thousand dollar self-evaluation of pedestrian right-of-ways on Monday night in response to new Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards.
Bolton & Menk, Inc. would conduct the study that looks to examine the condition of existing infrastructure in City right-of-ways, parks and public property. Officials will also evaluate current policies and practices related to public infrastructure to ensure that Saint Peter is not limiting accessibility or participation of users. If the self-evaluation were not complete, Officials say federal dollars for improvements could be withheld.
Once the data is compiled, Bolton & Menk would draft a transportation and compliance plan. Officials also plan to meet with the public to gather feedback and recommendations.
The total cost for the self-evaluation, transition plan and public involvement is just over 28-thousand dollars.
The City Council will consider the recommendation during its meeting scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
