The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was adopted in 1990 to require equal access to persons of all abilities. A key piece of the Act requires all levels of government to prepare a self-evaluation; an inventory of their level of compliance. In the case of Lewiston, the City operates many facilities and services that are subject to the ADA. The transportation network (right of way), public buildings, parks, recreational programs, public transportation, the City’s website and employment opportunities are all examples of what must comply with the ADA.
Identified needs in the rights-of-way have been prioritized by the City of Lewiston’s Disabilities Advisory Commission and reviewed by the Lewiston City Council in the form of an ADA Transition Plan. This plan was adopted on September 14, 2020.
Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication, or a modification of policies or procedures of the City of Lewiston, should make a request as soon as possible, but no later than 48 hours before the scheduled event by contacting the City.
