Equity in the Built Environment – Light Rail Accessibility Project
Do you or a loved one have a disability that impacts your ability to get around town?
As part of Redmond 2050’s focus on equity in the built environment, the City is conducting a study to better understand the needs of the disabled community related to accessibility to and from our new light rail stations.
This project is being completed in part through a grant from the Washington State Department of Commerce.
Thank you for helping us as we work toward improving improve equity in our built environment to create a city where all residents, regardless of physical ability, can be active participants in the way they choose, including accessing public transportation and major employment centers.
