The Topeka ADA Advisory Council is reviewing information from a community accessibility survey this summer. We will have our findings here by the end of the year.
Topeka citizens, with and without disabilities, appointed by the Topeka City Council to bring your voice to the Council and the community.
We advocate for you in all areas of the city's services including:
Your voice for a safer, more accessible community
Title I, Employment: All employers with 15 or more employees
Title II, State and Local Governments: State of Kansas, City of Topeka
Title III, Public Accommodations and Commercial Facilities: Restaurants, theaters, schools, daycare facilities, recreational facilities, doctor's offices, privately owned businesses, warehouses, and office buildings
Title IV, Communications: Communications issues relating to sensory impairments (primarily deaf and blind)
Title V, Other: A general category addressing issues not covered in Titles I-IV as well as who is not covered under ADA
The functions of the Topeka ADA Advisory Council fall primarily within the scope of the ADA Title II requirements.
