ADA Accessibility and Civil Rights
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was enacted in 1990 to ensure people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else to participate in all aspects of American life. Modeled after the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin, the ADA is an equal opportunity law for people with disabilities. The ADA prohibits discrimination based on disability.
Under the law, the City of Apache Junction strives to assure its programs, services and activities are readily accessible and usable by qualified persons with disabilities. The city will reasonably modify practices, policies and procedures to ensure participation is afforded to everyone.
The City of Apache Junction's ADA and Civil Rights Plan illustrates the city's commitment to the ADA. A complete report on each facility is available by contacting the ADA and Civil Rights Coordinator.
The City of Apache Junction invites and welcomes people of all abilities to use our programs, sites and facilities. Any question about our service for people with disabilities can be answered by the ADA Coordinator, at (480) 982-1055 or via email.
Limited English Proficiency
The City of Apache Junction has created a Limited English Proficiency Plan (LEP) in compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; 45 C.F.R. § 80 et seq; and 28 C.F.R. § 42 et seq. for the purpose of providing services to persons with limited English proficiencies and other proficiencies which hinder that person from having equal and meaningful access to city programs and services. The Plan is to provide a framework for the provision of timely and reasonable language assistance to LEP persons who come in contact with the city.
