The Disability Access Office (DAO) works toward a universally designed environment that makes it easy for all people, regardless of disability, to participate fully in community life. This echoes the spirit of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The San Antonio Building Access Modification Plan, coordinated by the DAO, serves as a master plan to modify all City facilities to accommodate all users. A City Council appointed Disability Access Advisory Committee (DAAC) serves as a valuable resource.

The DAO coordinates with other City Departments to review and amend city codes, policies, and procedures to assure they are universally usable to all. The DAO oversees an interdepartmental Sidewalk Compliance Team, participates in other jurisdiction's access and planning initiatives and trains and provides technical assistance to City Departments and the private sector in meeting the requirements of the ADA. Documents illustrating these efforts are available on request.
