It is the policy of Ada County to ensure that all facilities, programs, services, or activities provided by Ada County are accessible to individuals with disabilities. Ada County will furnish reasonable accommodations in the form of auxiliary aids and services where necessary to afford an individual with a disability an equal opportunity to participate in, and enjoy the benefits of, any program, service, or activity conducted by Ada County.
In an effort to clarify accessibility to the Ada County Courthouse at 3rd and Front Street we would like to remind all cab companies, transport services, and assisted living facilities that the East parking lot of the Ada County courthouse is fully accessible to patrons with disabilities and in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
An accessible entrance and ramp is available in the East parking lot along with a primary accessible entrance on Front Street. Taxis, vans, and special service vehicles may access the East parking lot to discharge disabled individuals without incurring a parking fee.
For questions regarding parking please call Connie Jacobs of Republic Parking Northwest at 368-7944 or Ada County ADA Coordinator Kelly Paananen at (208) 287-7123.
ASSISTIVE LISTENING DEVICES
Assistive listening devices are available for public use and can be checked-out at the Transcript Office on the 4th floor of the Courthouse, room #4171. The devices utilize the latest infra-red technology inside courtrooms for amplified sound.
In special circumstances, a sign language interpreter may be needed to conduct business that may be too complex to explain with the use of handwritten notes; for example a court proceeding or Indigent Services issue. If an accommodation is needed contact Sandra Barrios, Interpreter Coordinator, in the TCA office (208) 287-7686 to make arrangements. Advanced notice is required.
TTY or TTD PHONE
The TTY or TTD telephone is located on the 1st floor at the Information Desk, and is available for anyone to use. The number is (208) 287-7979.
