The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), enacted on July 26, 1990, provides comprehensive rights and protections to individuals with disabilities in the areas of employment, state and local government services, public accommodations, and telecommunications. The ADA Title II prohibits all state and local governments from discriminating on the basis of disability, but moreover, its goal is to promote equality of opportunity and full participation. The City of Monterey works to ensure that every program, service, benefit, activity and facility operated or funded by the City of Monterey is accessible to, and useable by, people with disabilities. The City continually strives to eliminate barriers that may prevent persons with disabilities from access to or participation in City programs, services, activities, and facilities.
