**Original press release - Dec. 19, 2017**
The Department of Public Works is seeking input from the community regarding the standards that the County uses to design pedestrian facilities on the county-maintained road system. The county is in the process of undertaking a massive project to install and upgrade curb ramps to current ADA specifications. This will be an ongoing project for many years. The scope of the project covers all of the county-maintained road system.
Prior to designing the new curb ramps for this project, Public Works will be updating its standards for pedestrian facilities. These standards include, but are not limited to, curb ramps, sidewalks, landscape strips, driveway aprons, pedestrian features at traffic signals, cross walks, transit bus stops.
To make sure that the updated standards meet the needs of the community, we need your input. We would like your input on pedestrian facilities in the county constructed within the last 10 years or so— regardless of which jurisdiction that they are located in:
Staff will on hand to hear the concerns and the needs of the community. Please bring a list of specific examples – both good and bad. Public Works will be consolidating all of the input received. The more requests for a particular curb ramp feature; the more likely it will be incorporated in future improvements.
Submissions may also be made by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by U.S. Mail to Humboldt County Public Works, Attn. Bob Bronkall, 1106 Second Street, Eureka, CA 95501.
The deadline to submit requests for consideration is 02/23/2018 at 5:00 PM.

The Department anticipates the entire process to be completed in about five (5) months.
