The City has taken several important measures to ensure accessibility and safety for people with disabilities, including widening the sidewalks and providing curb-cuts at every corner. Every City sidewalk is inspected annually for uplifts and hazards, and anything identified in the inspections is turned around into a proactive maintenance repair toimprove safety. The City upgraded pedestrian push buttons on traffic signals to the big two-inch diameter button and installed audible and count-down pedestrian crossings at some signalized intersections which tell people when they can cross the street and how much time is left for crossing before the light will change. In addition, zebra striped high-visibility crosswalks were installed to make pedestrians more visible to motorists.
