The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal civil rights legislation signed into law on July 26, 1990, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in both employment (Title I) and in the provision of government services (Title II).

ADA Title II

The application of the ADA to County Government is covered in Title II which requires that:

No qualified individual with a disability shall, on the basis of disability, be excluded from participation in or be denied the benefits of the services, programs, or activities of a public entity, or be subjected to discrimination by any public entity. ADA Regulation for Title II, Section 35.130 (a)

The County of Sonoma is committed to providing equal access to its buildings, programs, and services. The County’s Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan Update (SETP) (PDF: 5.3 MB) adopted in December 2009 details the County’s plan to comply with the ADA, and provides information on each County Department and a list of community resources.

ADA Coordinator

The County has appointed an ADA Coordinator to help Departments provide accommodation and to resolve any potential public concerns about access to County programs and services.

ADA Title II Grievance Procedure

The County encourages members of the public with complaints regarding access to a facility, program or service to attempt to informally resolve those complaints with the ADA Liaison for the individual department providing the facility, program or service.

In the event a complaint cannot be resolved informally, a grievance regarding access to County programs, services, or activities may be filed by completing the County of Sonoma ADA Title II Grievance Procedure Complaint Form (PDF: 69 kB).
