The City of Albany Public Works Department is in the final phases of developing an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan (SETP) for the Public Works Department that is focused on facilities within the public right-of-way. As this project reaches its final phases, the City is also starting the process to complete a citywide ADA SETP encompassing the other departments and all City programming.

The City is seeking people interested in participating as members of an advisory group for the planning project. As a member of the advisory group, one can expect to participate in up to three meetings throughout the development of the Plan, which will include:

  • discussion of the ADA Self-Evaluation of City programs, activities, and services;
  • identifying and establishing priorities for barrier removal; and
  • review of the ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan.

All meetings will be held remotely due to COVID-19 health concerns.

The City is looking for input from:

  • People with disabilities;
  • Other individuals and members of groups that encounter barriers related to accessing City services, such as parents of children with disabilities;
  • People with experience and knowledge of ADA planning and requirements or those who serve populations with disabilities; and
  • Any other interested Albany residents.

If you are interested in serving on this advisory group, please contact:

Bird is a private micromobility company providing scooters for rent in the City of Albany.

In March, the city council approved a one year trial of the scooters in Albany. There is no financial benefit to the City. As part of the Memorandum of Understanding, Bird will share ride data with the City. This data may inform the City of changes that need to be made to Bird's operational area and identify other community transportation needs in the future.

What if I have a comment or complaint?

Bird is responsible for handling community concerns about their product with the help of their local manager(s). You’ll find Bird's contact information prominently displayed on the vehicles or you can use the information below to report a vehicle that needs to be picked up, report inappropriate rider behavior, or request or remove scooters on your property.
