City Seeks ADA Architect

The City of Hudson is requesting proposals from qualified licensed architectural firms that are knowledgeable about the architectural accessibility requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
 
In 2019, the City of Hudson executed an Americans with Disabilities Act Settlement Agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ).
 
City departments have been working to address all of the findings included in the Settlement Agreement. The City desires to hire an independent licensed architect and accessibility firm to survey all remaining City facilities and sites to identify barriers and to assist in the development of the City's transition plan to remediate these barriers.
 
Work to correct these compliance issues range from room identification signage to larger projects such as reconstructing accessible routes or parking spaces.
 
It is a priority of the City to remove barriers and provide equitable opportunities so that people of all abilities can access City facilities and parks with ease, feel welcomed and included to participate in programs and services, and travel freely and safely at intersections throughout the City.

It’s important that people feel safe walking in Hudson and crosswalk signals can make an intersection safer. Safe streets make a more just city, a better quality of life, and improve our economy.
