State of California Title 24 Disabled Access Regulations
Building Inspectors are responsible for enforcing violations of California Title 24 Disabled Access regulations on existing buildings which have undergone construction projects with permits and inspections.

These are treated as Building Code Enforcement Cases when violations occur.
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
ADA is a Federal Civil Rights issue. City Building Inspectors do not have enforcement authority for ADA violations. ADA issues on private and public property are handled through legal action in Federal Court. Aggrieved parties should consult with an attorney.
The Town of Danville has identified ADA coordinators for both the public right-of-way areas (sidewalks, curbs, streets) and for public properties that are not part of the public right-of-way (e.g., Town Hall building, Town Offices).
