Municipality / Governments

ACS assists municipalities in the development of their ADA Title II Transition Plans. A municipality must first perform a self-evaluation of their programs and services, identifty all architectural barriers in their facilities, parks, and public-rights-of-way and pedestrian paths of travel and then develop a Transition Plan to remove barriers so that these services, programs, and activities are accessible by people with disabilities. We have vast experience in the development of such a plan and have provided our services to some of the largest municipalities and Mass Transit departments in the country. We deliver a comprehensive, user friendly and cost efficient plan, which will meet or exceed the requirements established for such a plan by the Department of Justice and other enforcing agencies.

If you would like further information regarding our services call Richard Londono Toll Free at 888-768-7788 ext 323 or email request to

Regulations and Enforcement Overview:

The Department of Justice enforces laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, and age in programs that receive federal financial assistance by federal agencies. These laws include: Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (prohibiting discrimination based on race, color and national origin); 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (prohibiting disability discrimination in all programs, services and activities receiving federal funding); Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (prohibiting disability discrimination by public entities, municipalities or governments, regardless of whether they receive federal financial assistance); The Architectural Barriers Act (requiring that buildings and facilities designed, constructed, altered, or leased with certain federal funds after September 1969 must be accessible to and usable by handicapped persons); and Executive Order 13217 (requiring federal agencies to evaluate their policies and programs to determine if any can be revised or modified to improve the availability of community-based living arrangements for persons with disabilities).

To date the Department of Justice has filed ADA Title II lawsuits against more that 180 municipalities in over 50 states costing the municipalities billions of dollars in imposed and non budgeted ADA remediation fines and attorneys fees and costs, -all as a result of not having a fully comprehensive and administered ADA Title II Transition Plan. In addition, individuals with disabilities may file a complaint with the Department of Justice and the Attorney General, and may file private lawsuits against municipalities, of which thousands have been filed nationwide.
