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.

 

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Transition Plans

Signed Into Law in 1990

Protects the Rights of Citizens With Disabilities

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
Push-Buttons

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.

Prioritizing Improvements

Public Feedback Guides Where We Invest

We need your help identifying barriers in the public right-of-way including sidewalks, curb ramps, crosswalks, and pedestrian signals. The information you provide will be used to help develop the transition plan.
