In an effort to make Sammamish public facilities and programs accessible to all, the City has undertaken a comprehensive Transition Plan process. The Plan will identify barriers which impede access to City buildings, parks, and pedestrian facilities in the public right-of-way.
City facilities will be surveyed based on compliance with current ADA (American with Disabilities Act) Title II standards. The planning process includes identification of physical barriers, categorization/prioritization of these barriers, and a schedule for barrier removal over time.Public Involvement
To date, the City's ADA Title II Transition Plan team has set up a booth at the Sammamish Farmer's Market and presented to a number of community groups to gather input regarding which barriers should be prioritized for removal. In late October, the City convened a focus group targeted toward individuals who are impacted by accessibility barriers, as well as groups that work with those individuals.
