The American with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 is a Federal Civil Rights Legislation, which mandates non-discrimination to persons with disabilities. The U.S. Congress signed the ADA in 1990, and it went into effect in 1992. The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in access to jobs, public accommodations, and governmental services and programs, public transportation, and telecommunications. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973: 

"No otherwise qualified [disabled] individual in the United States shall, solely by reason of [disability], be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance." 

The Town of Plainfield recognizes that it is important for its facilities, programs, and services to be available to all of its citizens and the general public. The Town of Plainfield further understands that some of its existing facilities, programs and services may have met accessibility requirements previously, but may not now, or may not in the future, as standards are revised or new standards developed. It is the Town's commitment to provide equal access to all of its public programs, services, facilities for citizens with disabilities, and in compliance with the ADA.

Plainfield ADA Transition Plan:  Pedestrian Network – 2021 Update

In 1990, the Federal Government passed the American with Disabilities Act (ADA).  This legislation led to sweeping changes across the country, including a renewed vision to ensure public facilities are accessible for all citizens.  You can learn more about ADA by visiting

In 2013, the Town adopted its first ADA Transition Plan for our Pedestrian Network.  A Transition Plan recognizes that many public facilities, particularly infrastructure, have been built that are not fully accessible by today’s standards.  Evolving standards, new technologies, and even simple aging and wear can affect accessibility compliance.  Thus, the reality is that a community is always transitioning to be more accessible.  With this in mind, the Town has been preparing the Plainfield ADA Transition Plan Update for 2021.  A draft version of this plan was recently presented to the Town Council and now we’d like to invite feedback from the public as we prepare to finalize the plan and request adoption by the Council.  We invite you to check out the draft plan and provide any feedback you feel would improve on our approach to make Plainfield’s pedestrian network more accessible.  Comments can be made through our website, social media, or can be mailed directly to any of the below contacts.  We will be accepting feedback at least through the upcoming Labor Day weekend.  

A link to the PDF version of the draft plan is included above under Related Documents.
