Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

Class Action Settlement for ADA Improvements 
The City of Long Beach has reached a class action settlement agreement to make sidewalks, crosswalks, and other pedestrian pathways safer and more accessible for the disability community. The settlement was preliminarily approved by Judge Dale Fischer on Monday, April 10, 2017.



The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 provides a clear and comprehensive national mandate for the elimination of discrimination against individuals with disabilities, and to bring persons with disabilities into the economic and social mainstream of American life.

The City of Long Beach is committed to complying with both the intent and spirit of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The City of Long Beach does not discriminate on the basis of disability in employment or in admission to, access to, or operations of its programs, services, or activities. Heather Blackmun, Citywide ADA/Title VI Coordinator has been designated to coordinate and carry out the City's compliance with the nondiscrimination requirements of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Some of our resources to support this effort are as follows:

If you have any questions, concerns, complaints, or requests regarding accessibility for people with disabilities, please contact Citywide ADA/Title VI Coordinator Heather Blackmun by email or by calling (562) 570-6257 or TTY (562) 570-2279.
