a. Parking: Although the parking lot has a total of 27 parking spaces, including 2 designated as reserved for people with disabilities, the spaces reserved for people with disabilities are not accessible because the spaces are not level and the surface is not firm, stable and slip resistant.

iii. The paper towel dispenser in each toilet room requires tight grasping to operate and protrudes more than 4 inches to the circulation path such that it is undetectable to a blind person or person with low vision who is using a cane. In each toilet room, provide a paper towel dispenser with mechanical controls, if any, that can be operated with 5 lbf or less and that can be used with one hand and without tight grasping, pinching, or twisting of the wrist (lever-operated, push-type, and electronically controlled mechanisms are examples of acceptable designs). At each location, provide a circulation path such that no objects with their bottom leading edges measuring between 27 inches and 80 inches above the finished floor protrude more than 4 inches into the circulation route. Free-standing objects mounted on posts or pylons may overhang 12 inches maximum from 27 inches to 80 inches above the ground or finished floor.

Provide a rear grab bar that is at least 36 inches in overall length, with the closer end no more than 6 inches from the side wall, and a side grab bar that is at least 42 inches in overall length, with the far end mounted at least 54 inches from the rear wall and the closer end 12 inches or less from the rear wall. Ensure that the grab bars are mounted 33 to 36 inches above the finished floor; with a diameter between 1¼ and 1½ inches; with 1½ inches between the grab bars and the wall; and at least 1½ inches between the grab bars and any object beside or below it and at least 18 inches between the grab bar and any object above it. Standards §§ 4.1.3(11), 4.22.4, 4.16.4, 4.26.2, Figs. 29, 39.

1 Shifting a toilet a small distance to comply with the centerline requirement need not be expensive.  The important factor is maintaining the correct distance between the side grab bar and the toilet.  Options include moving the partition on which the grab bar is mounted or installing an offset flange to shift the toilet.  Another option is to mount the grab bar on a board attached to the side wall or partition.  The board must extend 1 ½" below the grab bar and 18" above the grab bar to achieve the appropriate distance between toilet and grab bar.

g. Women's toilet room #2 only (on left side, facing toilet room entrances)
