To gather more comments about public right-of-way barriers for people with limited mobility, vision, hearing or cognitive disabilities, the City of Marysville is keeping an online survey open for another two weeks. The 10-question survey that will close March 22 takes about five minutes to complete. Find map-enabled and screen reader-friendly versions at https://www.marysvillewa.gov/1032/ADA-Plan.
The City especially wants to hear from:
- Individuals with disabilities;
- Senior citizens;
- People who encounter accessibility barriers such as parents, family members, friends or individuals with disabilities;
- Members of groups that provide services or transportation to individuals with disabilities;
- Individuals with experience and knowledge of ADA planning and requirements; and
- Interested Marysville residents.
Survey results will help inform the city’s development of an ADA Transition Plan. Its purposes are to:
- Identify physical and communicative barriers in the City of Marysville’s public right-of-way that limit accessibility to individuals with disabilities;
- Describe the methods to be used to make the public right-of-way accessible;
- Provide a schedule for making necessary modifications to provide better access and achieve compliance; and
- Identify the public officials responsible for implementation of the plan.
