Attachment K: Program Access in Existing Facilities

 

 

Please Note: Paragraph 53 of the Agreement requires that within three 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.

 

1. 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 "readily 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.

 

2. In order to ensure that each of the County'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 disabilities, the County will take the following actions:

 

3. The County represents that it is considering making significant renovations to the Courthouse, located at 100 Court in Marion. Within nine months of the effective date of this Agreement, the County will advise the Department, in writing, of its decision as to whether or not it will make these renovations. If the County does, in fact, decide to make these renovations, then within nine months of notice to the Department (18 months from the effective date of the Agreement) the County will submit for the Department's review complete design and construction documentation, including construction drawings, as built drawings, project manuals, addenda, and change orders for the alteration of these toilet rooms. The Department will review the documentation for conformity to the ADA Standards for Accessible Design and will note any deficiencies. Before the facility is opened, the County will ensure that any deficiencies are corrected and that construction is carried out in a way that meets the Department's approval. In the event that the County chooses not to go forward with the renovations, within 30 months of the effective date of this Agreement, the County will make the following modifications to the Courthouse.
