What Businesses Must Know: Making Riverside a More Accessible Place


The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has been touching lives and making the world a more accessible place for all Americans for 25 years. As laws change and building codes are updated, older cities like Riverside, with its layers of rich architecture and historic districts, are seeing an increase in ADA notices of violation. Businesses caught unaware can face expensive penalties. The Riverside Greater Chamber of Commerce and State Senator Richard Roth will be co-sponsoring a FREE seminar on March 6, 2015 to address the most common violations and misunderstandings. The purpose of this FREE seminar is to educate local business owners about ADA compliance, as well as provide information and resources on how to fix possible violations. It is crucial for business owners to understand all of the laws and responsibilities regarding their business in order to avoid legal issues.

“Businesses want to be in compliance, but they also need to know their rights,” said Cindy Roth, chief executive officer of the Greater Riverside Chambers of Commerce.

This FREE educational opportunity for businesses will take place on Friday, March 6, 2015, from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. on the first floor of the County Administrative Center, Board of Supervisors Chambers, 4080 Lemon Street, Riverside, CA. Brought together around common interest and concern, Riverside is a unified city that engages with one another to create a better life for all.

Although this is a free event, space is limited so be sure to RSVP.
