Request #19-812

During the City Council Meeting on October 7th, 2019, Mayor Miyagishima, once again, made the claim that the City has a local, state, and/or federal law/regulation  (possibly including from the Americans with Disabilities Act) that allows the City "to make one side of the street with sidewalks, despite the fact that after the 1990 ADA was established, sidewalks were built on both sides of the street (2 sidewalks/2 sides/2 separate pedestrian pathways) in 1994 and they have not been properly maintained.

Please provide the regulations which state the City has the right to eliminate needed sidewalks as well as any the may say and/or where they are getting their interpretation from that only has the responsibility to build a sidewalk only on "one side."  

I have asked staff, administration, the legal department, councilors, and the mayor for this information before and it has never been provided.

Thank you.
