This project will design, construct, or repair curb ramps and sidewalks including those identified through the City’s Barrier Removal Request process.

Through the help of dedicated volunteers on the City of Bend Accessibility Advisory Committee (COBAAC) and the Central Oregon Coalition for Access (COCA), key corridors and neighborhoods across the city have been prioritized for accessibility improvements.
