Apple Valley is updating its Americans With Disabilities Act guidelines.
The High Desert town’s transition and self-evaluation plan detail how Apple Valley will make facilities, programs, services, activities, and events accessible to handicapped people, according to a statement on the town’s website.
Town officials are asking for comments from residents and community organizations.
“This survey is an opportunity for us to hear from our residents,” said Mayor Scott Nassif in the statement. “We value community input, and want to ensure the Town of Apple Valley is inclusive to the needs of all residents.”
Surveys are available from the Town’s ADA Coordinator and on the Town’s website at https://www.applevalley.org/.
Passed in 1990, the ADA prohibits discrimination based on a physical or mental disability. It provides legal protection for the disabled much like the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits racial discrimination.
