In Fiscal Year 2011-12 the Transition Plan identified improving accessibility around Town Hall, Town Hall Annex, Historical Museum, Sterling Park Recreation Center, and Serramonte Blvd. from El Camino Real to Junipero Serra Blvd. The estimated cost to remove these barriers was $93,500. The actual barrier removal cost was $58,140 and $17,965 in ABAG PLAN Risk Management Grant Funds were used to help pay for the costs.
All projects in the ADA Transition Plan for FY2011-12 were completed except for one. The area that was not addressed was the parking lot at Town Hall, because additional study was needed to determine the best accessible route into Town Hall from the parking lot. This issue is scheduled to be addressed in Fiscal Year 2012-13.
However, in an effort to keep the Transition Plan moving forward, the Town removed several other physical barriers on Serramonte Blvd. between El Camino Real and Hillside Blvd., and the Colma Community Center that were originally scheduled for removal in Fiscal Year 2012-13. As a result, there is now an accessible route of travel on Serramonte Blvd. from Hillside Blvd. to Junipero Serra Blvd.
Also in Fiscal Year 2011-12 the Town received a request for reasonable accommodation regarding the accessibility issues on Mission Road; specifically the non-compliant curb ramps near public transportation. The Town evaluated the area of concern and was able to update three curb ramps improving the accessibility on Mission Road.
