Sidewalk ADA Ramp Improvement Plat

Title II of the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires local governments make their facilities, streets, and sidewalks accessible to people with disabilities, so they may travel throughout the municipality in a safe and convenient manner.  Currently, the Town of Emmitsburg (Town) is out of compliance with these regulations.  Curbs and associated sidewalks in 130 areas throughout the Town are old, cracking, too steep, and not ADA compliant, which create unsafe conditions for all citizens and visitors, but especially the elderly, disabled, wheelchair bound, and sight and hearing impaired.  The project consists of improving these sidewalk curb ramps in order to become ADA compliant.  The project is grant funded by a $685,893.00 Community Development Block Grant, $1,800.00in HOA donations, $10,000 from the Town, and $10,000 in-kind from the Town.
