Community Input Needed For City of Lakewood ADA Survey

May 10, 2022

The city of Lakewood has partnered with DLZ to perform an ADA self-evaluation of all city-owned facilities and programs for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Title II of the ADA requires that each of the city’s services, programs, and activities be readily accessible and usable by individuals with disabilities. Title II also requires public outreach to the community, especially persons with disabilities, their caregivers, and advocacy groups for the disabled. The city of Lakewood is sending this letter to solicit public input and comment on barriers that exist, or are perceived to exist, to persons with disabilities to access city programs.

We welcome your input to assist us in this project. All comments will be reviewed and considered and included in the final report. Please feel free to pass the information about this project on to others that you believe might be interested in providing input or comments. The comment period will be open until the adoption of the plan, which is tentatively scheduled to occur in the summer of 2021. A copy of the draft Transition Plan will be made available for public review and comment at local facilities and the city website, and you will be notified when it is available.

The city of Lakewood complies with the ADA and, upon request, will provide written materials in appropriate alternative formats, or disability-related modification or accommodation, including auxiliary aids or services, to enable individuals with disabilities to participate in public meetings. Please send a written request, including your name, mailing address, phone number, and brief description of the requested materials and preferred alternative format or auxiliary aid or service at least three (3) business days prior to the close of the comment period or the Public Hearing for adoption.

Please forward any comments, questions, or input to 12650 Detroit Avenue, Lakewood Ohio 44107 or via email at
