ADA Compliance
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 East Palo Alto, in keeping with its ongoing efforts to serve all members of the community, is updating its Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) transition plan and self-evaluation. The accessibility plan provides a comprehensive plan for access for individuals with disabilities to City facilities, parks, programs, services, activities, and events.

The City will use the ADA transition plan to determine where improvements can be made and how to incorporate the needed improvements into future projects. The plan will guide the planning and implementation of necessary program and facility modifications over the next several years. The ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan 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 City is currently undergoing a public input process to seek input from agencies, organizations, individuals with disabilities, and general public to help the City enhance accessibility to its facilities, programs, services, and events. The public input process will last 60 days from June 25, 2018 and end August 24, 2018. Below are directions on how to complete the survey:
