The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design require that all electronic and information technology must be accessible to people with disabilities. The ADA standards apply to commercial and public entities that have “places of public accommodation” including resources provided via the internet. As technology continuously evolves, our methods for communicating and delivering information to the public have changed. Today our most popular methods for delivering electronic information are the City’s website and social media channels. To increase transparency and access for individuals with disabilities, the City will work with subject matter experts to identify opportunities for improvement and develop a new compliance plan that will be implemented during the next 1-3 years.
This program has several phases with both a technology component and a physical infrastructure component (sidewalks and streets). Plans are underway to refresh the City’s website and its content to make it available in an ADA format, as well as implementing Adobe Sign to capture ‘e-signatures’. This technology phase is currently in progress and the streets and sidewalks programs fall under the Public Works Master plan.
