For immediate release:

Assembly Bill 2932 Ensures Sidewalks Are Accessible for Residents with Disabilities

 (SACRAMENTO) – Assemblymember Patrick O’Donnell (D – Long Beach) introduced Assembly Bill 2932, which will expedite the construction of sidewalks and make other infrastructure improvements for Long Beach residents. 

“This bill will knock down unnecessary delays and put shovels in the ground sooner,” Assemblymember O’Donnell said. “AB 2932 will speed up the construction of much needed city infrastructure.”

AB 2932 will allow the city to issue contracts for sidewalk construction projects by incorporating both the design and construction processes all in one-step. The streamlined process for bidding and awarding these contracts will expedite the upgrade of sidewalks and curbs as soon as possible to ensure that residents can safely travel along city streets.

The bill awaits referral to its first policy committee.
