Attachment I

 

Please Note: Paragraph 48 of the Settlement Agreement requires that within three months of the effective date of this Agreement, Juneau provide signage as necessary to comply with 28 C.F.R. § 35.163(b), after having surveyed all facilities that are the subject of this Agreement for the purpose of identifying those that have multiple entrances not all of which are accessible.

 

Existing Facilities: In order to ensure that each of Juneau's programs, services, and activities operating at a facility that is the subject of this Agreement, when viewed in its entirety, are readily accessible to and usable by persons with mobility impairments, Juneau will take the following actions:

 

A.        Within 12 months of the effective date of this Agreement, Juneau will complete the following modifications to the Juneau Fire Hall.

 

1.         Although 1 of the 25 parking spaces is reserved for persons with disabilities, tree roots have broken through the access aisle blacktop, so the access aisle is no longer level.  Provide designated accessible parking spaces and access aisles that are flat and level, with slopes and cross-slopes not exceeding 1:50 in all directions, with surfaces that are firm, stable, and slip-resistant.  Standards §§ 4.3.6, 4.5.1, 4.6.3.

 

2.         The coat rack is a protruding object that is not cane-detectable because its bottom leading edge is 61 inches above the finished floor and it protrudes 12 inches into the circulation path by the front entrance.  Provide an accessible route at this location such that no objects with their bottom leading edges measuring between 27 inches and 80 inches above the finished floor protrude more than 4 inches into walks, halls, corridors, passageways, or aisles.  Free-standing objects mounted on posts or pylons may overhang 12 inches maximum from 27 inches to 80 inches above the ground or finished floor.  Standards § 4.4.

 

3.         There is insufficient maneuvering space on the pull side of the latch side of the door to the classroom.  On the pull side of the door, provide maneuvering clearance at least 60 inches deep and provide a minimum of 18 inches (24 inches is preferred) of maneuvering clearance on the latch side of the door.  Standards § 4.13.6, Fig. 25(a).

 

B.         Within 24 months of the effective date of this Agreement, Juneau will complete the following modifications to the Douglas Community Library.

 

1.         The approach to the library entrance is inaccessible because of excessive slope.  Provide a door so that the floor or ground area within the required clearances is level and clear, or provide an automatic door opener.  Standards § 4.13.6, Fig. 25.

 

2.         The vestibule between the outer and inner doors is inaccessible because of excessive slope.  Provide a door so that the floor or ground area within the required clearances is level and clear, or provide an automatic door opener.  Standards § 4.13.6, Fig. 25.

 

3.         The inner doors require 14 pounds of force to operate.  Provide a door that requires no more than 5 pounds of force to open.  Standards § 4.13.11(2)(b).

 

4.         The drinking fountain at the entrance is not accessible to persons who have difficulty bending or stooping.  For each accessible drinking fountain, provide a drinking fountain that is accessible to people who have difficulty bending or stooping.  This can be accommodated by the use of a "hi-lo" fountain; by providing one fountain accessible to those who use wheelchairs and one fountain at a standard height convenient for those who have difficulty bending; by providing a fountain accessible to people who use wheelchairs and a cup dispenser, or by such other means as would achieve the required accessibility for each group of people.  Standards § 4.1.3(10)(a).

 

5.         The lowest level of the magazine stands are beyond the permissible reach ranges for persons who use wheelchairs.  Provide a magazine display with a minimum of 36 inches of clear width between units and with reach ranges of between 18 inches and 54 inches (maximum height of 48 inches is preferred) above the finished floor.  Standards § 8.4, Fig. 55.  Alternatively, provide magazine retrieval assistance and signage indicating its availability.

 

6.         The kids' round table with built-in benches is not accessible to kids with disabilities, due to the bench configuration.  Provide accessible tables on an accessible route at least 36 inches wide.  Ensure that the tables have clear floor space of 30 inches wide by 48 inches deep, knee clearance of at least 27 inches high by 30 inches wide by 19 inches deep, and a writing surface between 28 and 34 inches above the finished floor.  Standards §§ 8.2, 4.2.4.1, 4.32.

 

7.         The door from the center hallway to the conference room requires 15 pounds of force to operate.  Provide a door that requires no more than 5 pounds of force to open.  Standards § 4.13.11(2)(b).

 

8.         Because the sidewalk leading from the underground garage is so steep, CBJ has provided one on-street parallel parking space reserved for persons with disabilities.  However, there is no curb cut going from this parking space to the sidewalk, requiring users to transfer from their vehicles directly onto the sidewalk.  Provide at least one accessible route within the boundary of the site connecting these elements that, to the maximum extent feasible, coincides with the route for the general public.  The accessible route must have a minimum clear width of 36 inches, or a minimum clear width of 42 inches if there is a turn around an obstruction less than 48 inches wide; have passing spaces at least 60 inches by 60 inches at least every 200 feet; have a minimum clear headroom of 80 inches; have a surface that is firm, stable, and slip resistant; have, in the absence of a curb ramp, ramp, elevator, or platform lift, no level changes in excess of inch vertically; and have a running slope of less than 1:20 (5%) (or have been constructed as a fully accessible ramp) and a cross slope of less than 1:50 (2%).  Standards §§ 4.3, 4.5, Fig. 7.

e. The toilet stall for persons with disabilities is inaccessible.  Provide a "standard" accessible toilet stall at least 60 inches wide and at least 59 inches deep (or at least 56 inches deep with a wall-mounted toilet) such that all of the stall's elements, including stall door, stall door hardware, water closet, size and arrangement, toe clearances, grab bars, controls, and dispensers, comply with the Standards.  Standards §§ 4.13, 4.16, 4.17, 4.26, 4.27, Fig. 30.
