What is the Pueblo ADA Advisory Committee?
It is a group of people who help local businesses, governments and citizens understand their rights and obligations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). We try to find inexpensive ways to for people to comply. Our members have a variety of disabilities, and some of us are friends or family members of people with disabilities.
What does the ADA Advisory committee do?
We meet monthly to give feedback to the City of Pueblo on its plans to make buildings and services accessible to people with disabilities. We also help citizens with concerns they bring to us.
What is the history of the ADA Advisory Committee? It was established in 2003 as part a settlement with the Department of Justice. Pueblo was reviewed for compliance with the ADA by the Department of Justice and found to have many access problems. Our primary duty is to help the City of Pueblo be as accessible as possible, but we also offer help to individuals, businesses and other local governments.
