FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ADA Transition Plan to Increase Mobility in Skagit County

Skagit County 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. An ADA transition plan is one of the federally mandated requirements for state and local governments under Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

This plan focuses on pedestrian facilities in the Public Right-of-Way including curb ramps, sidewalks, crosswalks, and signal push buttons. Through the development of this plan, Skagit County Public Works will:

  • Inventory existing pedestrian facilities;
  • Identify barriers and obstacles which limit accessibility;
  • Determine criteria for the prioritization of barrier removal; and
  • Set a schedule for the removal of barriers.

The development of a comprehensive ADA Transition Plan requires feedback from community members just like you! Public feedback will assist the County in efforts to prioritize investments in accessibility. The public is invited to take a brief survey to provide critical feedback to County staff as recommendations and decisions are made regarding what needs fixing and how best to prioritize resources.

To complete the survey, please visit: www.skagitcountyada.com

Do you have a specific location that makes travel difficult for you or prevents you from accessing programs or activities? Please use the Online Reporting Tool to notify Public Works of your ADA concerns: www.skagitcountyada.com.
