ADA is a Federal Civil Rights issue. City Building Inspectors do not have enforcement authority for ADA regulations. ADA issues on private and public property are handled through legal action in Federal Court. Aggrieved parties should consult with an attorney.
The City of Concord has identified ADA coordinators for both the public right-of-way areas (sidewalks, curbs, streets) and for public properties that are not part of the public right-of-way (e.g., City Hall buildings, Council Chambers). For related complaints contact the Engineering Division.
California building code accessibility
New construction and alterations must meet the accessibility requirements of the California Building Code. Exceptions are allowed by the code that can be filed for using the Unreasonable Hardship Form (PDF).
