The goals of the ADA are to foster public recognition that disability is a natural part of the human experience and to expand opportunities for people with disabilities to participate fully in the civic, social, and economic life of our community, state, and nation.

Everyone is encouraged to honor July 26 as Americans With Disabilities Act Awareness Day and to celebrate the value of individuals with disabilities in our society. The City further encourages the reduction of stigma and discrimination against people with disabilities and supports the pursuit of programs ensuring that the spirit and founding provisions of the ADA are maintained, implemented, and enforced. There is no higher calling than to recognize the dignity and worth of all people.
