The American with Disabilities Act became effective July 26, 1990. This significant legislation extends civil rights to an estimated 40 million Americans with disabilities in much the same way that individuals are protected from discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, age sex, gender and religion. The ADA makes it illegal to discriminate on the basis of disability in the areas of employment, public service, public accommodations, transportation and telecommunication.

It is the goal of the City of Statesville to comply with the provisions of ADA by ensuring all programs, services and activities of the City include an equal opportunity for participation of individuals with disabilities. Disability is defined with respect to an individual, as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities.

The City of Statesville designates an ADA Coordinator to assist internal departments with ADA compliance efforts and to provide a point of contact for citizens and other concerned persons who may encounter an accessibility issue with City employment, programs and/or activities.

The City’s current ADA Coordinator is:
Lynn Smyth, Risk Manager

Statesville, NC 28687
Telephone: 704 832 3884
