ADA Guidelines

In 1990, the federal government passed a set of laws designed to protect individuals with disabilities from discrimination. This law is known as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The Lansing Entertainment and Public Facilities Authority (LEPFA) strives to provide all guests with an equal opportunity to participate in all services, programs, and activities. This includes those guests with special needs resulting from physical or mental disabilities. In order to achieve an equal opportunity for all guests, LEPFA has implemented policies and procedures that have heightened awareness of the needs of disabled individuals.

LEPFA management has instituted a comprehensive ADA plan designed to focus on the overall satisfaction for guests with disabilities. Individuals, who would like to review our ADA policies, may review the copy located at the administration office reception desk.
