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.
