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. Title II of the ADA pertains to the programs, activities, and services public entities provide. As a provider of public transportation services and programs, The City of New Brighton must comply with this section of the Act as it specifically applies to public service agencies.
As required by the Title II of ADA, 28 CFR Sec. 35. 105 and Sec. 35. 150, the City of New Brighton has conducted a self-evaluation of its facilities within public rights-of-way and has developed a Transition Plan detailing how the organization will ensure that all those facilities are accessible to all individuals.
City Council Adoption
The ADA Transition Plan for Public Rights-of-Way was adopted by the New Brighton City Council on November 23, 2021. A link to the adopted ADA Transition Plan is provided below. The plan can also be viewed in person at New Brighton City Hall, 803 Old Highway 8 NW, New Brighton, MN 55112.
A public meeting was held on November 16, 2021. Residents and community members were encouraged to provide input and help define priority areas for improvements within the jurisdiction of the City of New Brighton.
A Grievance Procedure has been established to meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 ("ADA"). It may be used by anyone who wishes to file a complaint alleging discrimination on the basis of disability in the provision of services, activities, programs, or benefits by the City of New Brighton.
Citizens may also contact the ADA Coordinator to discuss ADA issues without filing a formal grievance procedure. The City recognizes that contacting staff informally to discuss ADA issues does not limit a person's ability or right to file a formal grievance at a later date.
