The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was enacted on July 26, 1990, and amended effective January 1, 2009. Title II of the ADA prohibits state and local governments from discriminating against people on the basis of their disability and from excluding people from participation in programs, services, or activities because of their disability.

Title II requires local governments to prepare Transition Plans. The City of Bloomington prepared its first ADA Transition Plan in 1990 and has updated it several times since then, the last time in 2014. The 2014 version is available online at

Our goal is to ensure program accessibility for people with disabilities in our community by meeting or exceeding the requirements of the ADA. Periodic updates help us evaluate how well we are achieving that goal.

The City of Bloomington has designated the Bloomington Human Rights Director as the ADA Coordinator. The ADA Coordinator manages the City’s efforts to comply with Title II of the ADA and to communicate with local businesses about their responsibilities to comply with Title III of the ADA. The ADA Coordinator is responsible for investigating any alleged ADA violations by the City.

For questions, concerns, or a complete list of Council for Community Accessibility activities and volunteer opportunities, visit or contact Human Rights Director/ADA Coordinator Barbara McKinney at or 812-349-3429 or Special Projects Coordinator Michael Shermis at or at 812-349-3471.
