Who do I contact if I have special needs?
KBHCCD is ADA compliant. As new standards are introduced it is our goal to implement those changes or upgrades in a timely manner. In accordance with the ADA we are responsible for and provide permanent premises access accommodations such as, but not limited to: wheelchair lifts, elevator standards, door width standards and restroom accessibility.

It is the Lessee’s/Event Organizer’s responsibility to provide non-permanent accessibility requirements, such as, but not limited to, hearing-assistive or visually-assistive devices, and temporary seating accessibility and/or interpreters.  If you need non-permanent accessibility aid while at the KBHCCD please check at the registration desk for the event you are attending.

Are pets allowed?

Pets are not allowed at the KBHCCD; however service animals are welcome.

The KBHCCD follows ADA guidelines regarding service animals which are defined as any guide dog, signal dog, or other animal individually trained to provide assistance to an individual with a disability.

To avoid confusion we ask that service animals wear identifying harnesses or collars.  If the service animal does not have identifying harnesses or collars, staff may request to see the service animal’s license or registration.  If the animal is not licensed or registered, staff may inquire to verify that the animal in question is a service animal needed to aid a person with disabilities.  The care or supervision of a service animal is solely the responsibility of his or her owner. The KBHCCD does not provide care, food, or special locations for service animals.
