Accessibility

The City is conducting an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Self-Evaluation and will be developing a Transition Plan to identify and address needed ADA improvements throughout the City.

Titles


The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) consists of five titles:
  1. Title I prohibits discrimination against persons with disabilities in employment.
  2. Title II prohibits discrimination by state and local governments and requires that they ensure all facilities, services, and information provided are accessible to persons with disabilities.
  3. Title III provides for nondiscrimination against persons with disabilities in public accommodations.
  4. Title IV bans discrimination in telecommunications
  5. Title V contains miscellaneous provisions clarifying ADA's relationship to other laws and addressing such issues as health insurance.
