ADA Accessibility and Handicapped Parking

The City of Sunbury wants to ensure that all people are able to get about town.  Many streets and sidewalks have been upgraded with ADA accessible curbs and ramps.  Public handicapped parking is available in the commercial business district downtown and in municipal parking lots.  Residents with disabilities can request a handicapped parking space to be designated near their homes.  Approval is not guaranteed.  For an application for a residential designated handicapped parking space
