We are on our way to major improvements for health, safety and community spirit building!
Please join the efforts in transforming the dangerous sidewalks in our community to a safe, welcoming, ADA accessible “pedestrian promenade.”
Our Campus Community is in great need of safe, ADA walkways.The campus is a beautiful setting and home to many of our loved ones with intellectual/developmental disabilities complicated by complex medical and/or behavioral concerns.
The sidewalks are left over from the 1940’s when this property was used for the Seattle Naval Hospital. The walkways are too narrow for 2 people to walk side by side and are dangerous for those who need assistance with mobility. There are many cracks, holes and uneven areas. Much has been spent on grinding surfaces over the years but this is only a band-aid “fix” to the problem of dangerous, non ADA compliant walkways.
Given that this community is a community of people with disabilities, it is time that we supported the construction of ADA accommodations in the walkways on campus.
Adding a pedestrian promenade will greatly enhance the life experience of our residents – we see it as a community connector and will be an invitation for them to get outside, walk, enjoy the sites and company of others and build community.
Please help us fund the survey and design for this much needed walkway.
We are building our design team. Peggy Gaynor of GAYNOR, Inc. is providing landscape architectural design & consulting services on behalf of the project. As soon as we have chosen our surveyor and/or civil engineer, we will publish their names as part of the professional design team also.
