On July 26, 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law. The ADA is a comprehensive civil rights law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of disability. It is also a declaration of equality for people with disabilities, including the statement of congressional intent “to assure equality of opportunity, full participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency for individuals with disabilities.” It broadly protects the rights of individuals with disabilities in employment, access to State and local government services, places of public accommodation, transportation, and other important areas of life.

The Transition Plan contains information and updates to structural modifications needed to make services and programs in City facilities accessible to people with disabilities. For additional information about accessibility and disability services, visit the Department of Human Services & Recreation.
The Compliance Plan is successor to the 2010-2015 ADA Transition Plan (Transition Plan). The purpose of the 2017-2021 Accessibility Compliance Plan (Compliance Plan) is to guide the City in continuing to make services and programs in City facilities accessible to people with disabilities.
