It is the policy and practice of the City of Atascadero to take all reasonable steps to ensure its services, programs and activities are accessible to all members of the public including persons with disabilities. Our ADA Coordinator works to ensure City departments comply with this policy by:

  • Providing technical assistance to support City departments in complying with federal, state and local disability access laws.
  • Assisting departments in evaluating their facilities, programs, services, and activities to ensure provision of reasonable accommodations to people with disabilities.
  • Conducting training for City employees in disability awareness, disability etiquette, disability access laws, and reasonable accommodations.
  • Facilitating the resolution of grievances filed against the City that allege noncompliance with disability access laws.

If you would like to make a request for reasonable accommodation or submit a grievance, contact the City's ADA coordinator. Please allow two business days for all requests for Reasonable Accommodations to be received.
