The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a civil rights law that mandates equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities. The ADA prohibits discrimination in access to jobs, public accommodations, government services, public transportation, and telecommunications.
The City of Emeryville is undertaking a comprehensive re-evaluation of its policies, programs, and facilities to determine the extent to which individuals with disabilities may be restricted in their access to city services, activities, and facilities.
The updated Transition Plan will guide the planning and implementation of necessary program, facility, and sidewalk modifications over the next several years. The ADA self-evaluation and Transition Plan Update is significant in that it establishes the city's ongoing commitment to the development and maintenance of policies, programs, and facilities that include all of its citizenry.
The most important element of this update is to solicit concerns and recommendations from the public regarding accessibility issues. Please submit comments on the accessibility of city programs, facilities, and sidewalks using the Comments on Accessibility of the City Form.
