  DISABILITY-FRIENDLY CITY SURVEY
  In order to better serve the needs of people with disabilities and seniors, the City is asking people to participate in a Disability-Friendly City Survey. Elements that make a city friendly to people with disabilities and seniors are accessible options for transportation, housing, health services, civic and social involvement, recreational and leisure facilities, environment and weather, education, and employment.

Stephanie Cook, the City's ADA Coordinator, sees progress being made. She's pleased the City is prioritizing walkable neighborhoods, and more paths are being opened for people using wheelchairs.
