State taking public comments regarding ADA transition plan for parks

Oregon Parks and Recreation Department is accepting public comments on a Americans with Disabilities Act Transition Plan that will guide the agency in removing barriers to park access over the next 25 years.

The ADA Transition Plan identifies barriers and provides a roadmap for removing them in order to provide access to parks and park programs for people with disabilities. Identified barriers range from inaccessible picnic areas and restroom facilities to parking lots with limited accessible parking. 

Public comments on the proposed change will be accepted through 5 p.m. Feb. 15. Comments can be made online, in writing or via email:
