Website Accessibility

The San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC) is strongly committed to improved accessibility for all. BCDC is working to satisfy Priority 1 and 2 guidelines, for "AA" compliance of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0. In addition, the Commission is working to satisfy Section 508, Subpart B, Subsection 1194.22, Guidelines A-P of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as revised in 1998.


The undersigned certify as of July 1, 2019, that the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC) is working to ensure its website complies with California Government Code Sections 7405 and 11135, and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0, or a subsequent version, published by the Web Accessibility Initiative of the World Wide Web Consortium at a minimum Level AA success criteria.

Source documents created since April 2019 have been checked for compliance as PDFs; however, they need to be checked with a screen reader for visual compliance. All PDFs prior to April 2019 and California templates are in process.

Ongoing efforts include conversion of historical documents to an accessible format and engaging with third parties to address accessibility of their documents and content. BCDC strives to ensure that its website content and services are accessible to all visitors.
