 ADA Transition Plan

The City of Rancho Cordova adopted a ADA Transition Plan on May 2, 2005. The main purpose of this plan is to develop policies and practices for implementing physical pedestrian improvements within the public right-of-way of the City of Rancho Cordova. The goal is to optimize the pedestrian experience, to provide safe and usable pedestrian facilities for all pedestrians, and to assure compliance with all federal, state and local regulations and standards.

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and subsequent interpretations by the Department of Justice require municipalities such as the City of Rancho Cordova to prepare a plan detailing how they will make their streets and roads accessible to disabled individuals. In addition, the plan is addressing California Title 24 requirements. The plan identifies and prioritizes disabled access projects, estimate project costs, highlight and implementation schedule and funding strategy, and grievance and monitoring programs.

For additional information, please contact Rupa Somavarapu, Senior Engineer at 851-8712 or via email at rsomavarapu@cityofranchocordova.org.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plans

The City of Rancho Cordova has completed the Draft Final Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plans. These plans will help promote safe and desirable non-motorized travel for residents and workers and to provide good connections across Highway 50 and to regional trails systems like the American River Parkway Trail. The Final Master Plans were presented to the Rancho Cordova City Council for approval on March 21, 2011.

For additional information, please contact Rupa Somavarapu, Senior Engineer at 851-8712 or via email at rsomavarapu@cityofranchocordova.org.
