ATTACHMENT K: Program Access in Existing Facilities

Please Note: Paragraph 20 of the Agreement requires that within nine (9) months of the effective date of this Agreement, the County will 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. The technical requirements and, where appropriate, the scoping requirements of the Standards are used as a guide for determining whether a program or activity held in an existing facility is Areadily accessible to and usable by persons with disabilities and for determining what changes are necessary to make this program or activity accessible if it continues to be provided in the existing facility in question.  See 28 C.F.R. §§35.150(b)(1), 35.151.

The chart below lists the facilities surveyed by the Department, the access issues identified during the survey, and the actions required to correct the access issues.  Required actions are listed using an alphanumeric code.  The key to the alphanumeric codes is provided in Attachment M to this Agreement. 

In order to ensure that the programs, services, and activities housed in the County's facilities are accessible to persons with disabilities, when viewed in their entirety, the County will take the actions referenced by the alphanumeric code and described in detail in Attachment M to this Settlement Agreement within the time period specified below, which time period begins to run on the effective date of the Agreement.
