Accessibility & Nondiscrimination Policies

 

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), enacted in 1990 and amended in 2008, is administered by the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. Village of Key Biscayne efforts to comply with the ADA are as follows:

 

  • The Village of Key Biscayne ADA Self Assessment and Transition Plan (PDF), dated December 6, 2019, developed policies and practices for implementing physical pedestrian improvements within the public right-of-way of the Village. Improvements and monitoring to ensure compliance with the ADA are ongoing.

  • The Village of Key Biscayne website was designed according to the guidelines and principles of Section 508 of the ADA.

    Section 508, as currently amended, provides guidelines for developing and maintaining accessible information technology. Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers in information technology for individuals with disabilities, to make available new opportunities and to encourage development of technologies that would help achieve these goals. The law applies to all federal agencies when they develop, procure, maintain, or use electronic and information technology. The Village of Key Biscayne has voluntarily elected to use Section 508 as the standard for accessibility compliance for www.keybiscayne.fl.gov even though the Village is not specifically bound by this federal legislation.

  • Additional information about accessibility programs in Florida is available from Florida's Agency for Persons with Disabilities. The agency serves as a central source of information for Floridians with disabilities.

The Village Manager signed the Florida Division of Transportation (FDOT) Title VI Nondiscrimination Assurance Agreement on May 13, 2019. This agreement is pursuant to Section 9 of the U.S. Department of Transportation Order 1050.2A.
