Listening Session for ADA Transition Plan – Lewiston

Thursday, December 5th
11:30 am
Disability Action Center NW 330 5th St Lewiston ID, 83501

The City of Lewiston is hosting three hour-long public sessions on December 4 and 5 to gather input on the City’s Americans with Disabilities Act Transition Plan. The City’s consultants will be on-site to engage in discussions with all residents to learn about the needs of people with disabilities or caregivers of those with disabilities. The focus of the ADA Transition Plan is on the public right of way and its accessibility. This includes streets, sidewalks, streets corners and curb ramps, push button access, and other details.

The ADA Transition Plan seeks to address barriers in public rights of way along streets and highways within the boundaries of the City of Lewiston. The City has collected data for all its streets and will, in combination with public input, prioritize investments to transition its sidewalk system to ADA compliance over a series of years.

While the ADA Transition Plan is focused on the needs of people with disabilities, the City also recognizes that providing a system of sidewalks and curb ramps that are accessible to those with disabilities creates a system that is accessible to people of all ages. People who do not live in Lewiston but regularly travel to Lewiston for services are also welcome to attend and provide input.

You may take the online survey if you prefer. Questions asked in the survey are the same as what will be asked at the public session.
