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. In an effort to make Woodinville public facilities and programs accessible to all, the City conducted an organizational self-evaluation to determine compliance with Title II of the ADA. The City then developed a Transition Plan to correct and mitigate accessibility concerns going forward.
Woodinville's ADA Transition Plan identifies barriers which impede access to City buildings, parks, and pedestrian facilities in the public right-of-way. The Plan prioritizes accessibility investments related to barrier removal and establish a schedule for compliance with the ADA. The final plan was adopted by City Council on April 19, 2022. The final plan can be viewed at the link provided below:
During 2022 and 2023, the City invested in over $530,000 in ADA improvements by upgrading 45 ADA ramps, and adding 565 square feet of detectable warning surfaces. The City is actively working on ADA improvements to make public facilities and programs in Woodinville accessible to all.
