Ferndale Launches Online Open House and Survey to Develop ADA Transition Plan

Ferndale Launches Online Open House and Survey to Develop ADA Transition Plan

The City of Ferndale is in the process of developing an ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Transition Plan to guide when and where mobility improvements need to be made. City staff are conducting an inventory of current pedestrian facilities throughout the entire city to find gaps in and barriers to accessibility.

To assist with this effort, the City is hosting an online open house and community survey to gather input from residents as to what needs to be improved. Regardless of whether or not someone has difficulty moving through Ferndale, the City wants to hear their voice as part of this process. 

Online open house and survey are available here: www.cityofferndale.org/FerndaleADA
