Whatcom County ADA Transition Plan Survey

At the open house on July 30th, the Whatcom County ADA Transition Plan "survey" was introduced. The survey will remain open through August 30th, 2019.

Take the survey at this link:, this will help us develop an ADA Transition Plan that will assist Whatcom County in achieving "Mobility for All". 

Please tell your friends and others you know who might be interested in this survey or ADA issues. Also, if you know someone who does not have internet access and would like to take this survey, have them contact me for a hard copy.

Additional opportunities to participate in the ADA Transition Plan will be coming in September.
