The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in several important areas, including employment, transportation, public accommodations, communications, and access to state and local government programs and services.

The Folsom City Council approved the city's Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan on April 14, 2009. The city is now implementing the plan.

Section I of the Approved Plan

Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan

Title II of the ADA dictates that a public entity must evaluate its services, programs, policies, and practices to determine whether they are in compliance with the nondiscrimination regulations of the ADA. A self-evaluation is required and intended to examine programs, services, and activities; identify problems or barriers that may limit accessibility by persons with disabilities; and describe potential compliance solutions to programs, services, and activities. The entity must then proceed to make the necessary changes resulting from the self-evaluation. The ADA also requires a transition plan be prepared to describe any structural or physical barrier changes required to make programs, services, and activities accessible.
