ADA & Pedestrian Plans
Pedestrian Master Plan & Best Practices Manual
The the Pedestrian Master Plan and Best Practices Manual for Pedestrian Design have been adopted by City Council.
The Pedestrian Master Plan is intended to establish policies, projects, and programs that improve the pedestrian system in Roseville and increase walking for transportation, recreation, and health. The Pedestrian Master Plan includes:
- Goals, policies, and implementation measures for pedestrian improvements and programs.
- A recommended pedestrian network.
- A Capital Improvement Program that establishes a 20-year framework for improvements to the pedestrian environment
The Best Practices Manual for Pedestrian Design presents design options for the pedestrian network. The three elements addressed in the Best Practices Manual for Pedestrian Design are:
- Sidewalks in the public right-of-way.
- Street crossings (at intersections and between intersections).
- Signals and signs at street crossings that warn motorists of the pedestrian presence and inform pedestrians where and when to cross streets.
ADA Transition Plan
The ADA Transition Plan for Public Rights-of-Way documents the legal and functional goals and objectives of the City in order to make existing pedestrian facilities within the public right-of-way accessible and usable for persons with disabilities. The ADA Transition Plan has been prepared pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which requires that all public agencies develop a transition plan for the installation of curb ramps or other sloped areas at all locations where walkways cross curbs. The plan is required to give a schedule for curb ramp installation, as well as describing other improvements necessary to achieve programmatic accessibility for persons with disabilities. The main purpose of this transition plan is to describe the curb ramp and pedestrian facility needs within the City and to outline the recommended procedures for implementing and scheduling remedial work to provide a complying system of curb ramps, sidewalks, and related facilities within the public right-of-way.
The ADA Transition Plan is one component of a larger project intended to optimize the pedestrian experience; provide safe and usable pedestrian facilities for all pedestrians, and; assure compliance with all federal, state, and local regulations and standards. Other components of this project include the Pedestrian Master Plan and Pedestrian Design Guidelines. Together, these three documents are intended to provide guidance for the design and installation of the wide variety of facilities within the public right-of-way. These facilities include streets and roadways, vehicular and pedestrian bridges, underground and above-ground utilities, vehicular and pedestrian signal systems, signage systems, on-street parking facilities, sidewalks with curb ramps at intersections, planting strips and buffers, pedestrian activity areas, and unimproved open spaces that are part of the public right-of way.
