ADA Transition Plan Feedback

Friday, July 6, 2018

At the February 20 Board of Commissioners meeting, Recreation Accessibility Consultants shared a comprehensive access audit of all Glencoe Park District parks and facilities. The audit specifically focuses on compliance with the American with Disabilities Act, which prohibits the government from discrimination on the basis of disability in the delivery of programs and services. Recreation Accessibility Consultants presented an updated ADA Transition Plan, designed to eliminate accessibility barriers at parks and facilities. For more than forty years, Glencoe Park District has shown its commitment to recreation for people of all abilities. Since 2015, Glencoe Park District has committed $461,500 to ADA implementation. The District plans to address the recommendations in the report to assure that the benefits of recreation remain available to all Glencoe residents, including those with disabilities.
