Accessibility

The City of Deerfield Beach is committed to serving the needs of all of its citizens and visitors, and our goal is to ensure access to information for a diverse audience. To that end, the City is incorporating into its website accessibility design standards to meet Universal Design concepts supported by the W3C Guidelines and ADA Accessibility Requirements.

ADA Coordinator

The City of Deerfield Beach has established an ADA coordinator to facilitate assistance for disabled residents and visitors. The ADA coordinator is able to facilitate members of the public with the provision of auxiliary aids and services for City meetings, programs and events. The ADA coordinator also investigates and seeks to resolve any complaints regarding accessibility to City facilities or programs.

Help Identify ADA Accessibility and Sidewalk Improvements

The City of Deerfield Beach invites citizens to identify and request accessibility improvements for the disabled to public sidewalks and intersections located within the City's jurisdiction and control. The City will include such locations on a prioritized list of sidewalk and intersection locations that require improvements to meet American's with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines. For more information, please contact the ADA Coordinator.

Documents

Many documents on our web pages are in ASCII or HTML format, which are accessible to people who use screen reading software and to those with other vision or mobility impairments. Generally, we use Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) to create pages and documents that are accessible to those users.

Our website also contains many Adobe Acrobat PDF (Portable Document Format) files. We use this method when documents are not available in digital form, are too large or difficult to produce in HTML, or are publications where the format is critical to the usability of the document. Adobe Systems, Inc. is developing products designed to make PDF documents more accessible. Adobe’s accessibility web pages describe their efforts.


Adobe Acrobat Reader software is available for free from Adobe Systems, Inc. This software allows you to view, navigate and print Portable Document Format (PDF) files. To download, install and use Adobe Acrobat Reader:
