A public body may not require that a request is submitted on a standard form or require the requester to specify the purpose for a request, except to determine whether the records are requested for a commercial purpose or whether to grant a request for a fee waiver. All requests for inspection and copying received by a public body shall immediately be forwarded to its FOIA officer or designee.

Recreation accessibility consultants conducted an audit of the Geneseo Park District’s parks and facilities and its compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. The primary goal of the ADA is to provide the community with equal access to Geneseo Park District facilities and services.

Using the results of the audit, an ADA transition plan was created. You can find a summary of the plan at the front desk of the Geneseo Community Center.

ADA transition Plan Summary. If you have any questions regarding the ADA transition plan, please contact Scott.
