ADA curb transition - white cane

The Palm Beach TPA will host an ADA transition plans workshop on Oct. 11, for local government representatives. Dean Perkins, Florida Dept. of Transportation's ADA Coordinator, will conduct the training from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM, on the first floor of the Vista Center at 2300 N. Jog Rd., West Palm Beach, FL 33411. To reserve a seat, contact Malissa Booth at MBooth@PalmBeachTPA.org or 561-684-4143.

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).

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!
