Roselle Park District and the ADA
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) took effect in January 1990 and the Roselle Park District complies with the legislation’s purpose which prohibits discrimination on the basis of a disability. The Roselle Park District will make reasonable accommodations in recreation programs to enable participation by an individual with a disability that meets essential eligibility requirements for that leisure program and facilities. The ADA requires that recreation programs offered by the park district be available in the most integrated setting appropriate for each individual. If you have questions about Roselle’s commitment regarding the ADA policy or you believe you have been unfairly discriminated against by the park district, please call the Nick Kapetan, ADA Compliance Officer, at 630-994-4589 or Lynn McAteer, Director, at 630-894-4200.
Accommodation for Persons with Disabilities
Persons with disabilities are encouraged to contact the Nick Kapetan, ADA Compliance Officer, at 630-994-4589 or Lynn McAteer, Director, at 630-894-4200 about special accommodations needed for the enjoyment of park district programs.
The Western DuPage Special Recreation Association (WDSRA) is a cooperative extension of the Roselle Park District.
