Attachment K: Program Access in Existing Facilities

 

Please Note: Paragraph 31 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 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 disabilities, the City will take the following actions:

 

1. By December 31, 2010, the City will complete the following modifications to the Police Department Headquarters, located at 505 S. 15th Street:

 

a. First Floor Drinking Fountains: Due to the alcove, access for a parallel approach is diminished and no forward approach is available. Provide a lower drinking fountain that complies with the Standards and that is accompanied by a 30 inch by 48 inch clear floor space and an adequate route to the clear floor space to enable persons with wheelchairs to approach and use the fountain. Standards §§ 4.15, 4.27.4, Fig. 27.

 

b. Main Entrance

 

i. The pull/latch side of the hinged door has a maneuvering clearance of only 6 inches. 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).

 

ii. The threshold has a vertical rise of 1 inches and is not beveled. Provide a door with a threshold no greater than inch, or between inch and inch and beveled with a slope no greater than 1:2. Standards §§ 4.13.8, 4.5.2.

 

c. Alarms: There are audible alarms but no visible alarms in hallways, corridors, meeting rooms, toilet rooms, or lobby. 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 § 4.28.3.

 

d. Elevator

 

i. The door stays open for only 8 seconds after reopening in response to an obstruction. Provide doors that open and close automatically with a reopening device that will stop and reopen the car door and hoistway door automatically if the door becomes obstructed by an object or person. Ensure that the device is capable of completing these operations without requiring contact for obstructions passing through the opening at heights of 5 inches and 29 inches above the finished floor; that door reopening devices remain effective for at least 20 seconds, after which the doors may close; that the minimum time from notification that a car is answering a call until the doors of that car start to close is 5 seconds; and that the minimum time for elevator doors to remain fully open in response to a car call is 3 seconds.

Additionally, 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.
