On July 26, 1990, President George H.W. Bush signed into law the ADA, a comprehensive civil rights law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of disability. The ADA broadly protects the rights of individuals with disabilities in employment, access to State and local government services, places of public accommodation, transportation, and other important areas of American life. The ADA also requires newly designed and constructed or altered State and local government facilities, public accommodations, and commercial facilities to be readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities.

The City of Jacksonville is committed to providing accessible information to all citizens, and is continually seeking resources to improve COJ.net. For more information please visit the City's Accessibility Statement.


The City of Jacksonville provides free information and materials to city partners and the public about the requirements of the ADA.

Reading some of the documents provided requires the Adobe Acrobat Reader, available for free from Adobe.
