Advisory Commission on Disabilities  

The Advisory Commission on Disabilities (ACD) is an advisory commission to assist, inform and advise the administrative and elected officials of the City on all matters pertaining to discrimination against individuals with disabilities.

ADA Facility Transition Plan

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires communities prepare a Facility Transition Plan to identify and provide a plan to address building features that are not in compliance with current ADA requirements. The City of Naperville has updated its Facility Transition Plan by working first with the Farnsworth Group, an architectural firm, to independently evaluate 22 City facilities for ADA Compliance. The plan includes more than 1,900 deficiencies totaling an estimated $2.5 million. To address these items, the Advisory Commission on Disabilities established a rating system to prioritize improvements based upon life safety concerns, level of facility use by the public, accessibility impediments, estimated cost, and project complexity. If approved, the plan will guide the city’s efforts to make ADA improvements with facility upgrades, improvements, and through Capital Improvement Program Investment.

On February 3, 2016, the Advisory Commission on Disabilities received the DRAFT Facility Transition Plan and recommended it be made available for a 60-day public comment period. On April 6, 2016, the Advisory Commission on Disabilities recommended approval of the Facility Plan to the Naperville City Council. The document will be forwarded to city Council later this spring for approval. The City Council approved the document on May 3, 2016.
