WithersRavenel conducted internal and external facility reviews to assist the City of Havelock with the creation of a comprehensive ADA Transition Plan. This included a review of the City’s policies, consulting with the City to identify an ADA Coordinator and an ADA Administrator, solicitation of public input, an assessment of multiple vertical and pedestrian facilities throughout the City, a review of the City’s programs and a review of the City’s website.
Vertical facilities assessed included City Hall, the Animal Shelter, the Senior Center, multiple parks and recreation sites, the Boys and Girls Club facility, the public services facilities among others in accordance with ADAAG methodology. Non-compliant features found during the assessment were noted in ADAAG checklists. Pedestrian facilities across the city were assessed according to PROWAG methodology and photographed.
WithersRavenel used a customized ESRI Collector application to spatially locate and document non-compliant features. The final report includes a comprehensive overview of the Havelock ADA program and a five-year plan to address non-compliant features with programs as well as vertical and horizontal facilities. The study process began in July 2020 and was completed in December 2020.
