Site Accessibilty

The City of Alaminos website is built to provide access for a widening variety of newer technologies and web browsers, including assistive technologies for the Internet. For most visitors, our site is now easier to use, quicker to access, and more streamlined for updates and modifications.

We are continuing to improve the site to comply with web standards outlined by the World Wide Web Consortium.

We welcome comments on how to improve the site's accessibility for users with disabilities. If you use assistive technology and the format of any material on our Web site interferes with your ability to access the information, please contact us . To enable us to respond in a manner most helpful to you, please indicate the nature of your accessibility problem, the preferred format in which to receive the material, the Web address of the requested material, and your contact information. 

The World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) contains an extensive list of accessibility resources. For more information see:

Adobe Acrobat (.PDF Documents) Accessibility

A number of documents on the City of Alaminos website are only available in Portable Document Format (PDF). Though the City of Alaminos web site attempts to only list materials that are available in HTML or other equally accessible formats, sometimes resources are identified that can only be provided efficiently in PDF format and are too important to ignore. In these cases where a resource is only available in PDF, a link will be provided identifying resources that aid in accessing PDF files.

Free tools from the Adobe Corporation are available to assist visually impaired users in accessing the .pdf files on this site: 

Additionally, Adobe has a .pdf conversion tool that will convert .pdf files to HTML pages. You will find this resource at:
