Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1991 (Public Law 101-336) was adopted by Congress for the purpose of eliminating discrimination against individuals with disabilities. The act directed the Department of Justice to prepare and publish rules of implementation. The final rule was published on July 26, 1991 (28 C.F.R. Part 45) which set the standards for implementing the Act. The Act prohibits exclusion of qualified individuals with a disability from services, programs or activities of any state or local government which includes park districts as of January 26, 1992. Individuals with concerns or questions should contact the Grayslake Park District office at (847) 223-7529.
