Our Commitment to Accessibility
The City of Colorado Springs is committed to making its websites accessible to the widest possible audience. We are constantly working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website. We strive to maintain conformance to W3C’s Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 as well as US. Federal Government Section 508 Guidelines.
The City of Colorado Springs will be evaluating this site on a regular basis and it will continue to evolve and improve over time as new technologies and opportunities emerge.
For more information about the City's accessible procurement policy, please visit Accessible IT Procurement.
In March 2020, Mayor John Suthers signed Administrative Regulation 2020-02 requiring City online technology be accessible to persons with disabilities and assistive technology.
Administrative Regulation 2020-02 mandates that the City will begin the process of remediation of existing technology, procure accessible online technology, and coordinate training and policy modification efforts throughout the City via the Office of Accessibility and the Accessibility Prioritization Committee (established per Administrative Order 2020-02).
