Attachment K: Program Access in Existing Facilities

Please Note: Paragraph 54 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.

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.

In order to ensure that each of the City'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, the City will take the following actions:

  1. Within 12 months of the effective date of this Agreement, the City will complete the following modifications to the 95th Street Recreation Building (LaSalle Facility), located at 9501 Colvin Boulevard:

On the shortest accessible route to the accessible entrance, provide at least 1 van accessible space and 2 standard spaces designated as reserved for people with disabilities. Ensure that the standard accessible space is a minimum of 96 inches wide and served by access aisles at least 60 inches wide. Ensure that van accessible spaces are a minimum of 96 inches wide and served by access aisles at least 96 inches wide. At all spaces designated as reserved for persons with disabilities, provide vertical signs with the International Symbol of Accessibility located such that they cannot be obstructed by parked vehicles. At van accessible spaces, provide an additional "Van-Accessible" sign located below the International Symbol of Accessibility. Ensure that all spaces and access aisles for persons with disabilities are flat and level, with slopes and cross-slopes not exceeding 1:50 (2%) in all directions, and that their surfaces are firm, stable, and slip-resistant.
