ADA Transition Plan
The City of Burien Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan provides policies and practices for implementing physical pedestrian improvements within the public right-of-way of the City of Burien. The goals of the plan are to optimize the pedestrian experience, to provide safe and usable pedestrian facilities for all pedestrians, and to ensure compliance with all federal, state, and local regulations and standards. The ADA Transition Plan describes the curb ramp and other pedestrian facility needs in the city, and outlines the recommended procedures for implementing and scheduling remedial work to provide a compliant system of curb ramps, pedestrian signals and sidewalks. The plan was originally developed in 2015, and identified initial priority geographies for barrier inventory and removal.
Fall 2017 update
The City of Burien updates their ADA Transition Plan every three to five years, and this year we’re identifying the next phase of priority geographic areas in Burien for barrier inventory and removal. The City of Burien wants to hear from Burien residents, people with disabilities, and local service and advocacy groups about priority areas to improve accessibility. On November 2, 2017, the City hosted a public meeting and sought feedback about what’s most important for the City of Burien to consider in their update to the ADA Transition Plan.
