Access the Valley- About us

Participating Chamber Businesses

Welcome to Access the Valley, a community initiative supported and funded by the CV Foundation and the Greenways Trail Alliance. Our goal is to visit  local venues and take pictures, measurements and videos of accessible features of each place and promote them  here and on the Greenways Trail Alliance. We are aiming to  provide information to tourists and residents with mobility restrictions.  Businesses will be added as they are reviewed. 

Who are We?

Cassy and Kate are both long time local residents who both benefit from  having accessibility in the valley. Kate was born with Cerebral Palsy, and either uses a electric wheelchair to get around independently, or uses the assistance of another person to help her walk. Cassy's challenges are by proxy with the recent injury of her husband after a ski accident left him with a spinal cord injury in 2015. Our unique and varied experiences help us to view the businesses we use with different eyes.
