What is Walla Walla Doing?
Learn About the Process
The city of Walla Walla is in the process of developing an ADA Transition Plan in early 2020. In addition to conducting an inventory of pedestrian facilities, the development of a plan relies on feedback from members of the community through community briefings, on-line surveys, this online open house, and focus groups.

Get in the Know
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires that public entities having responsibility for, or authority over: facilities, streets, roads, sidewalks and/or other areas meant for public use develop a Transition Plan to make their facilities meet accessibility standards. The city of Walla Walla is in the process of developing a transition plan by the end of 2019. In addition to conducting an inventory of city facilities, the development of a plan relies on feedback from members of the community.
Gaps and Barriers
Do you have a specific location that causes you difficulty?
Use our online reporting tool to tell us where.
The city is currently conducting an inventory of gaps and barriers, including those listed below.
Cracked and Uneven Sidewalks
Unrepaired sidewalks are challenging for most people especially for those using walkers, and wheelchairs or people who are blind or have low vision.
Curbs at Intersections Without Ramps
Curbs without ramps are inaccessible for those using wheelchairs and challenging for those with walkers and pushing strollers.
Obstructions in Sidewalks
Obstructions such as poles and overgrown vegetation are challenging for all and specifically for those who are blind or have low vision, or those with wheelchairs if the width is inadequate.
Curb Ramps Without Detectable Warning Surfaces
Ramps not equipped with a means of detection present a basic safety concern for those with sight impairments.
Inaccessible / Inaudible
Inaccessible and/or inaudible crosswalk push-buttons present a basic challenge for users in wheelchairs and users with sight impairments.
Lack of Available ADA Parking Spaces
Insufficient or nonexistent ADA parking spaces prevent access to government offices and other service-provider locations.
