Pavement Management System

The Engineering department maintains a pavement management system which contains an inventory of all City streets, and each year determines which projects will be funded.

and appropriate number of spaces

Projects continue to be addressed as funding is available. Yearly planning for the highest priority projects should continue with the budget process.

Many City buildings were constructed prior to the enactment of access codes and were not originally designed to provide ready access for individuals with disabilities. While facilities constructed in more recent years have differing degrees of accessibility, various features within them are deficient as a result of changing code provisions. Some structures, however, have undergone remodeling and alterations and consequently do comply more fully with current standards. In general with respect to City facilities that were reviewed, there is at least one route into most buildings and a considerable number of the public facilities and programs within them are accessible to some degree by current standards. An evaluation of exterior passage ways among City buildings, including such features as curb ramps, walks and sidewalks, handrails, and contrasting striping on stairs, has revealed some areas that are deficient as accessible routes. Additional work is needed to remove the remaining obstacles to program accessibility found among features such as restrooms and other specialized use areas.


Accessibility is not only for individuals with needs related to mobility disabilities, but also for individuals with needs related to speech, cognitive, vision and hearing disabilities. There are many potential barriers to accessibility of City services, and the following are simply a few of the more common examples:

Physical BarriersProgram Barriers
ParkingBuilding signage
Path of entry/travel"Customer" communication and interaction
DoorsAccess to public telephones
Service CountersEmergency notifications, alarms, visible signals
RestroomsCommunication (via internet, public meetings, telephones)
