Investments in Safe Passage

Investments in Safe Passage

In 2019, The Dalles City Council adopted the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan. The City's goal is to provide accessible design features as part of transportation projects. To this end, the City has established new ADA design standards. ADA sidewalk access will be installed each year as budget allows.

The City makes the most of limited resources. But these investments won’t make a difference if people block or encroach upon sidewalks. It is a safety concern if sidewalks are blocked or not wide enough for safe passage. Please help parents pushing strollers, children walking to school, pet owners walking their dogs, and people using wheelchairs, walkers or canes travel safely in your neighborhood:

  • Place garbage cans in the parking area by the curb or in your driveway instead of blocking sidewalks.
  • Trim shrubs and trees so that sidewalk passage is wide enough for all travelers.
  • When parking a car in a driveway, do not block the sidewalk.
