The city of Wilmington has entered into an agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to make the city more accessible to people with disabilities.
Under the agreement, the city will make physical modifications to its government facilities so parking lots, routes into the buildings, entrances, public telephones, restrooms, service counters and drinking fountains are accessible to persons with disabilities.
It will also distribute information to the public about the ADA and how disabled people can access city programs and services. Also in development: A grievance procedure for handling disability discrimination complaints.
The agreement is part of the DOJ’s Project Civic Access, a program designed to ensure that cities make public facilities accessible to the disabled.
