ADA & Inclusion

    ADA & Inclusion

    Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation is committed to ensuring individuals with disabilities have an equal opportunity to participate in our programs, services, and activities.


    Request for Modifications

    All of our programs and facilities are designed with inclusion in mind. If you or your family member would like to participate in any program or use our facility, we can make modifications to meet your needs. Requests for modifications must be made at least one month before participation.

    Transition Plan

    In 2015, Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation implemented an American’s with Disabilities Act audit on all of their facilities, parks, programs, and policies. From this audit, we created our ADA Transition Plan.

    Grievance Process + Form

    If you recently visited a CCPR park/facility or participated in one of our programs and believe that there is an accessibility or inclusion issue that is covered under the ADA, please bring it to our attention within 60 days by filling out a Grievance Form. Potential issues should be notified in writing whenever possible, however, if you are unable to write due to a disability, please contact our ADA Coordinator Katie Smith at 317.573.5248 or to discuss alternate delivery methods. Once a grievance is filed, you will receive confirmation of receipt within 48 business hours from the CCPR Inclusion Team. The Department will conduct an analysis of the grievance and contact you with the final resolution within 120 days.

    If this does not satisfactorily resolve the issue, qualified individuals may submit an appeal within 15 days of the decision. Appeals should be in writing addressed to CCPR ADA Coordinator Katie Smith,, or agreed upon alternative delivery method from original submittal. All appeals will receive a written response within 30 days of receipt.
