Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 provides a clear and comprehensive national mandate for the elimination of discrimination against individuals with disabilities, and to bring persons with disabilities into the economic and social mainstream of American life.
The City of Long Beach is committed to complying with both the intent and spirit of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The City of Long Beach does not discriminate on the basis of disability in employment or in admission to, access to, or operations of its programs, services, or activities. Heather Blackmun, Citywide ADA/Title VI Coordinator has been designated to coordinate and carry out the City's compliance with the nondiscrimination requirements of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Some of our resources to support this effort are as follows:
- ADA Public Notice for the City of Long Beach
- The City of Long Beach has a Citizens Advisory Commission on Disabilities (CACOD), a committee made up of citizens and representatives from public and private agencies. CACOD engages in various activities to service anyone who has a physical or mental impairment. Please click on the link above for more information on CACOD.
