Accessibility For All
The City of Kirkland is committed to ensuring that Kirkland is a diverse and inclusive community that is concerned for the welfare of all community members and where everyone is respected, valued, and has a sense of belonging. The City Council’s top goal is to protect and serve all those who live in, work in or visit Kirkland without regard for race, religion, color, national origin, gender identity, age, income or economic status, political affiliation, military status, sexual orientation, or physical, mental or sensory ability; to strive for equitable access to justice; and to eliminate systemic barriers to equality.
The Americans with Disabilities Act was signed into law on July 26, 1990. The law prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities, assuring them of equality of opportunity, full community participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency. City of Kirkland makes all reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy all of its programs, services, and activities. Below are some of the accessible amenities and resources available through the City of Kirkland.
