Increasing Mobility in Ferndale

The City of Ferndale, Washington is in the process of developing an ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Transition Plan to guide when and where mobility improvements need to be made. Our staff is conducting an inventory of current pedestrian facilities throughout the entire city to find gaps in and barriers to accessibility.
The development of a comprehensive ADA Transition Plan also requires feedback from community members  just like you! To gather this feedback, the City is conducting an online survey to better understand your mobility experiences.

The Americans with Disabilities Act

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires an ADA Transition Plan from public entities having responsibility for, or authority over facilities, streets, roads, sidewalks and/or other areas meant for public use (collectively referred to as “facilities”). This Plan must describe how facilities will be transitioned to meet Federal accessibility standards.

Gaps and Barriers

Obstacles, big and small, can make navigation difficult or impossible for members of our community. Some common examples are below:


Cracked and Uneven Sidewalks

Unrepaired sidewalks are challenging for many people, but especially for those using walkers and wheelchairs or people who are blind or have low vision.
