Port of Everett Accessibility Planning Underway
Feedback Opportunities via Online Survey and/or Virtual ADA Workshop on Feb. 18 (see below)
The Port of Everett is committed to providing equal access to its public programs, services, facilities, and activities for all citizens including those with disabilities. To achieve this end, the Port is in the process of developing its Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan, a document that will formalize the Port’s plan to ensure its facilities, programs and administrative practices remain in ADA compliance. The Plan will assist the Port in identifying barriers to accessibility and to develop barrier removal prioritization solutions that will facilitate the opportunity of access to all individuals within the Port’s transportation network (streets, sidewalks, crosswalks, etc.), recreational facilities, and identified policies and procedures.
The Port is pursuing a phased approach to this effort with Phase I (Winter 2021 - Spring 2021) focused on identifying and prioritizing barriers in the Port’s transportation network and select outdoor recreational facilities within the destination waterfront from 10th to 18th Streets, west of West Marine View Drive. Phase I will also establish policies and procedures set by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) and involve a public outreach component. Subsequent phases intend to further identify and address barriers in remaining Port facilities including other recreational sites, building facilities, and Port services, programs and activities.
