Town of Solana Seashore will use roughly $52,000 in Neighborhood Growth Block Grant funding for entry ramps which are compliant with People with Disabilities Act requirements, following a Metropolis Council vote on Oct. 25.
“Annually, what we do is we establish places within the metropolis that require up to date or new ADA entry ramps, and that’s what we’re proposing to fund once more by means of this cycle,” Solana Seashore Metropolis Supervisor Greg Wade mentioned.
Solana Seashore Deputy Mayor David Zito talked about the potential of prioritizing places alongside the town’s Secure Routes to College record. Secure Routes to College is a program designed to make sure safer situations for college kids alongside their every day commutes, notably those that stroll and bike.
Wade mentioned the precedence is to create ADA-compliant ramps in places that presently don’t have them.
“The entire routes, we’re joyful to say, have entry ramps,” Wade mentioned. “Not all of them meet present requirements, however our precedence is to establish places the place there are none. As soon as we deal with all these, our expectation is to go in and retrofit the present ramps to present requirements.”
The places of the ramps that can obtain funding are on Pacific Avenue on the intersections of Ocean Road, Solana Vista Drive, West Cliff Road and Hill Road, in addition to the intersection of North Acacia Avenue and Estrella Road.
The funding comes from San Diego County’s Division of Housing and Neighborhood Growth
