Focus on Accessibility – City of Naperville ADA Resource Guide


The City of Naperville has published an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Resource Guide. This is a useful tool that may help you in regard to where to turn if you have a specific ADA related question or concern.

manning_webAs the City’s ADA Compliance Specialist it is my responsibility to ensure that all services and programs that the City of Naperville offers are accessible to and usable by people with disabilities. Please call or e-mail me if you have a request for an accommodation to attend a public City meeting, or believe that a program or service is not accessible. You may reach me at (630) 420-6725 or manningm@naperville.il.us.

The ADA Resource Guide also provides resources and contact information for a number of different agencies that handle different types of disability discrimination complaints.

If you believe your employer has discriminated against you because of a disability and you are a qualified individual for that job, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission can assist you. To contact them call (312) 353-2713.

If you believe that a public place is not accessible or meeting its ADA obligations, there are two resources to assist you. First, call the Illinois Attorney General’s Disability Rights Bureau at (312) 814-5684. You may talk with a Disability Specialist or complete the on-line Disability Discrimination Complaint Form on their website at www.illinoisattorneygeneral.gov. You may also file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Americans with Disabilities Act, Civil Rights Division at (800) 514-0301.

The ADA Resource Guide has much more information. Find a copy of the brochure at City Hall, 400 S. Eagle Street or on-line at www.naperville.il.us/acd.aspx.
