Today, the Justice Department entered into a settlement agreement with the City and County of Denver, Colorado, under Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to satisfy Denver’s obligation under an existing 2018 settlement agreement to have an Independent Licensed Architect (ILA) survey facilities that the United States did not survey as part of its initial investigation and to enter into a supplemental settlement agreement with the United States to remedy alleged ADA violations identified by the United States. Under the 4.5-year supplemental agreement, Denver will ensure that the 18 facilities covered by the agreement are accessible in compliance with Title II of the ADA and the applicable ADA Standards for Accessible Design. The facilities covered by the agreement include the Colorado Convention Center, several police and fire stations, a courthouse, a detention center, two theaters/auditoriums, an animal shelter, and several municipal buildings.
