St. Pete Supports Accessibility

The City of St. Petersburg has a long commitment to the goals of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). In 1972, before the ADA was signed, the City of St. Petersburg created the Committee for Assistance to the Physically Impaired, and in 1995 the City established the Committee to Advocate for Persons with Impairments (CAPI). CAPI ensures that the City’s programs, services and activities are accessible for people with disabilities. All City of St. Petersburg departments and agencies work to ensure accessibility and welcome participation by people with disabilities in all of their programs and services. 

Community Disability Survey

The City of St. Petersburg is conducting a community survey to collect feedback on disability accessibility. We’d like you to let us know how well the City delivers programs and services for individuals with disabilities, ways we can better reach and support you, and what matters most to you.

If you have a disability, know someone who does, or serve as a caregiver, we want to hear from you. The survey can be completed online below until October 31.

When that is not possible, an internal grievance procedure has been established. The ADA Coordinator is responsible for investigating and resolving those complaints. In addition to the internal grievance procedure, individuals may file an administrative complaint with a designated federal agency or with the Department of Justice and have the right to file a private lawsuit for injunctive relief and damages.
