City of Norman ADA Transition Plan
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a civil rights law that mandates equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities. The ADA prohibits discrimination in access to jobs, public accommodations, government services, public transportation, and telecommunications. Title II of the ADA also requires that all programs, services, and activities (PSAs) of public entities provide equal access for individuals with disabilities.
The City of Norman has undertaken a comprehensive evaluation of its PSAs to determine the extent that individuals with disabilities may be restricted in their access and has formulated the following transition plan:
