This project is currently in the data collection and synthesis phase. A draft Plan is anticipated to be available for public comment in June 2021. Final plan adoption is anticipated for July 2021.
In an effort to make Woodinville public facilities and programs accessible to all, the City is conducting an organizational self-evaluation to determine compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act (Title II). Once the self-evaluation is complete, the City will develop a Transition Plan to correct and mitigate accessibility concerns going forward. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal law that mandates nondiscrimination on the basis of disability and requires State and local government provide people with disabilities an equal opportunity to benefit from programs, services, and activities.
Woodinville's ADA Transition Plan will identify barriers which impede access to City buildings, parks, and pedestrian facilities in the public right-of-way. The Plan will prioritize accessibility investments related to barrier removal and establish a schedule for compliance with the ADA.
To guide the development of the ADA Transition Plan, the City engaged with the general public and members of the disabled community in Fall 2020 to provide information about the project and solicit input on barriers to accessibility for City facilities and programs. The City will summarize all outreach and comments received and incorporate community feedback into Plan recommendations.
