ADA/504 Statement

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504), the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and related federal and state laws and regulations forbid discrimination against those who have disabilities. Furthermore, these laws require federal aid recipients and other government entities to take affirmative steps to reasonably accommodate the disabled and ensure that their needs are equitably represented in the transportation planning process.

The Town of Davie will make every effort to ensure that its facilities, programs, services and activities are accessible to those with disabilities. The Town will make every effort to ensure that its advisory committees and public involvement activities include representation by the disabled community and disability service groups.

The Town encourages the public to report any facility, program, service or activity that appears inaccessible to the disabled.

Accessible 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.

  • Be sure to select the version of Adobe Acrobat Reader that is compatible with your system.
  • Follow the installation instructions completely. (After the download, you will need to install the file by running the executable (.exe file) from your operating system.)
  • Configure your browser options.
  • Upgrade your version of Adobe Acrobat Reader periodically to use the latest features.
  • Contact Adobe Systems, Inc. if you are having trouble installing or using their products.
