Give feedback on access improvements in Berkeley
This survey is part of a larger effort by the Public Works Department to improve accessibility in Berkeley. We will use the results to develop a Transition Plan required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to transition local governments to ADA compliance.
Accessibility benefits many pedestrians, including but not limited to people with disabilities, seniors, and parents with strollers and small children. Such improvements encourage the use of public transportation and travel without cars, thus reducing greenhouse gases and other negative impacts of driving.
These efforts build on Berkeley's longstanding commitment to creating a more equitable community and supporting the City's Strategic Plan goals to provide state-of-the-art, well-maintained infrastructure, amenities, and facilities.
In making services and buildings easier to use for those with disabilities, we improve access for all.
Please share this survey widely.
