PA to Host ADA Transition Plan Training - Oct. 11 

ADA curb transition - white cane

The Palm Beach TPA will train local government and private sector representatives at an ADA transition plans workshop on Oct. 11. The instructor will be Dean Perkins, Florida Dept. of Transportation's ADA Coordinator. The time will be 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM, and the location will be on the first floor of the Vista Center at 2300 N. Jog Rd., West Palm Beach, FL 33411. Even those who have not pre-registered are welcome to attend.

The Palm Beach TPA is required by federal agencies to sign assurances that all recipients of federal funds allocated by the TPA have ADA transition plans in place. ADA transition plans outline a jurisdiction's assessment and plans for bringing their infrastructure into compliance with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Walk Friendly Communities Program Applications Due Dec. 15

Walk Friendly Communities (WFC) is a national recognition program developed to encourage cities and towns across the United States to develop and support walking environments with an emphasis on safety, mobility, access, and comfort. Sponsored by Fed Ex and managed by the University of North Carolina Highway Safety Research Center since 2010, the program distinguishes communities leading the way in walkability and seeks to share their stories to inspire other communities. Cities and towns interested in joining the ranks of Walk Friendly Communities are encouraged to submit an application by Dec. 15. Visit WalkFriendly to learn more. 


Share a Link, Share an Opportunity

Are you part of a local government, a homeowners or neighborhood association, a business or civic organization or another group? Simply sharing a TPA website link in a newsletter or email can give many more Palm Beach County travelers an easy opportunity to share their transportation priorities with officials and decision-makers. Just ask your audience to go to PalmBeachTPA.org/participate for links to the brief survey in either English or Spanish. Please be sure to take the survey yourself and share with family, friends or co-workers!
