The City of Clayton has multiple project each year that address ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) related obstacles. Below are annually reoccurring projects that Public Works has to address these obstacles.
ADA Improvements Project
This capital improvement program serves to address ADA items (sidewalk, curb ramps, etc...) throughout the City of Clayton each year with funding allocated in the yearly budget. The Public Works Department utilizes our ADA transition plan, visual inspections and citizen reports to prioritize repairs on a "worst first" basis which is determined by the condition and location of the sidewalk.
Weather permitting, work will typically begin in in early spring and take place at various locations through out the City. These projects will typically occupy a small footprint and impacted property owners will be notified as required.
CDBG (Community Development Block Grant)
This project is funded through federal funds and administered by the St. Louis County's Office of Community Development. The City of Clayton currently receives $22,500 annually through this program. This funding can be used in numerous ways, the city is currently using this program to address items in the our ADA Transition Implementation Plan. This years project will replace curb ramps along S. Meramec (Walinca to Daytona) to bring them into ADA compliance.
Weather permitting, work is scheduled to begin on 3/14 and take approximately two weeks. Nearby property owners should have recently received a notification on their doors notifying them of the upcoming work.
