Ensuring Accessibility

We oversee the City's efforts to comply with federal laws, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the 1973 Rehabilitation Act (Section 504). The program develops training and resource material and advises City employees and the public about how to integrate people with disabilities into City activities. In addition, this program plans and oversees efforts to eliminate physical and programmatic barriers in the City's facilities and infrastructure for people with disabilities.

Building a Community

Serving citizen needs as effectively and efficiently as possible is our goal in building our community. Needs are identified, planned, designed and managed both proactively and with input from the community. Our innovative approach to service delivery is to work in partnership with Berkeley residents and businesses through coordination, mitigation, and strategic planning. The Engineering Division plans and manages construction contracts to complete improvements to the City's infrastructure: streets, sidewalks, sanitary sewers and storm drain sewers, and utility undergrounding. This division also maintains infrastructure records and provides maps to the public. The division also oversees the construction of new structures such as the Public Safety Building, Animal Shelter, Hills Fire Station, and I-80 Bicycle Pedestrian Overpass.
