Attachment J: Altered Facilities

 

 

Please Note: Paragraph 27 of the Settlement Agreement requires that within three months of the effective date of this Agreement, the City 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.

 

In order to ensure that the following spaces and elements in City facilities, for which alterations commenced after January 26, 1992, are readily accessible to and usable by persons with disabilities, the City will take the following actions:

 

I.                    The City is replacing the facilities at Bryan Park, located at 2301 SW 13th Street. Prior to construction, the City will provide to the Department a full set of plans and construction manual for all new facilities at this Park. The Department will review those plans and, if modifications are required to bring the Park into compliance with the ADA Standards for Accessible Design, will provide comments to the City. The City will modify the facilities' design and construction to conform to the Department's comments prior to its opening.

 

II.                 Within 24 months of the effective date of this Agreement, the City will complete the following modifications to City Hall, located at 3500 Pan American Drive:

 

A.                 Security Gate: The security gate entrance has an opening width of only 30 inches. The City will use a hand wand for persons who cannot maneuver through the narrow security gate, or it will provide a security gate with a clear opening width of 32 inches. Standards §§ 4.1.3(7)(a), 4.13.5, Fig. 24.

 

B.                 Alarms: Although the facility contains an emergency alarm system, the alarm system is inaccessible because the system lacks visual alarm appliances in all appropriate places. Provide visual alarm devices in toilet rooms and any other general usage areas (e.g., meeting rooms), hallways, lobbies, and any other area for common use. Such devices shall be integrated into the facility alarm system and shall meet the requirements of the Standards for lamp type, color, pulse duration, intensity, and flash rate. Visual alarm appliances shall be placed 80 inches above the highest floor level within the space or 6 inches below the ceiling, whichever is lower. Visual alarm appliances shall be located such that no place in any room or space, including common corridors or hallways, required to have a visual alarm appliance shall be more than 50 feet from the signal. In large rooms and spaces exceeding 100 feet across, without obstructions 6 feet above the finished floor, devices may be placed around the perimeter, spaced a maximum of 100 feet apart, in lieu of suspending appliances from the ceiling. Standards §§ 4.1.3(14), 4.28.3.
