American with Disabilities Act
 
 
 

ADA SETP

In 1990, the Federal Government enacted the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Title II of the ADA required all public organizations with 50 or more employees adopt a Transition Plan identifying physical obstacles limiting access to programs, services and activities by persons with qualified disabilities and bring related deficiencies into compliance with the ADA. The City of Elkhart's elected officials and staff believe everyone has a right to access public rights-of-way, facilities and programs. The City of Elkhart is committed to making that happen.

The City of Elkhart completed the multi-step process of writing its Transition Plans in 2012.  The Right-of-Way Transition Plan and the Programs, Services and Facilities Transition Plan are available by clicking on the title. The City will continue to review the Transition Plans as new construction projects in the public right-of-way and any renovations of public facilities are completed.

The City of Elkhart acknowledges its desire and responsibility to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. In order to assist individuals with disabilities who require special accommodations for participation in, or access to, City-sponsored public programs, services and meetings, a request for accommodation can be made by submitting this form or contacting the ADA Coordinator at (574) 294-5471.
