Meetings to address county pedestrian facilities plan

Carver County will host two identical public meetings to collect input for the Carver County Pedestrian Facilities ADA Transition Plan. The first scheduled public meeting is on Sept. 5 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. The second meeting is on Sept. 6 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.
Both meetings will be held in the Thorton Wilder Room at the Chanhassen Library. Attendees can assist the county with identifying pedestrian facilities on county roads that are not compliant with the American Disabilities Act. Information collected will be used by the County to create a transition plan outlining timelines and strategies to address non-compliant pedestrian facilities.
Both public meetings will use an open house format which provides members of the public an informal atmosphere to come at any time during the designated meeting times. Attendees may talk to county staff to learn about the project and provide input.
Pedestrian facilities on Carver County roads include crosswalks, curb cuts, traffic signals, and other amenities that assist individuals traveling by foot, wheelchair, bicycle, or other non-motorized methods. The American Disabilities Act sets design standards for public rights of way to meet the needs of people of all abilities. Public input is an important part of the process for the county to plan strategies and timelines for improving pedestrian facilities to current ADA standards.
The Thorton Wilder Room at the Chanhassen Library is located at 7711 Kerber Boulevard in Chanhassen.
