Please Note: Paragraph 50 of the Settlement Agreement requires that within three months of the effective date of this Agreement, the County 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 inCounty facilities, which were altered after January 26, 1992, are readily accessible to and usable by persons with disabilities, the City will take the following actions:

1. Within twelve months of the effective date of the Agreement, the County will complete the following modifications to Grapevine Park, located at 13115 Grapevine Road, Phyllis:

a. Anticipated construction or alterations: Construction of or alterations to this facility are anticipated by the County during the life of this Settlement Agreement, including construction of or alterations to the concession stand, the horseshoe area, and the performance stage. The County will submit to the Department for prior approval all construction documents including all plans and specifications, and change orders affecting accessibility for the facilities at Grapevine Park. The County will incorporate all modifications requested by the Department to ensure that the facilities comply fully with the ADA Standards for Accessible Design (Standards). These modification will be made before the facility is open for use or, if already open for use before the Department's comments are received, within three months of that date.

b. Parking (existing element): Although the parking lot has a total of 12-15 parking spaces, there are no spaces reserved for persons with disabilities. On the shortest accessible route to the accessible entrance, provide 1 van accessible space designated as reserved for people with disabilities. Ensure that the van accessible space is a minimum of 96 inches wide and served by an access aisle 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 in all directions, and that their surfaces are firm, stable, and slip-resistant. Standards §§ 4.1.2(5), 4.6, 4.30.7(1).

c. Accessible route through park (altered element): At the beginning of the accessible route from the parking lot, there is grating over a drain with spaces 1 inch apart with the long dimension parallel to the dominant direction of travel. Provide grating that has spaces no greater than ½ inch wide in one direction. If the gratings have elongated openings, they shall be placed so that the long dimension is perpendicular to the dominant direction of travel. Standards § 4.5.4.

d. Basketball court (altered element): No accessible route is provided to the basketball court from the walking track. Provide at least one accessible route within the boundary of the site connecting these elements that, to the maximum extent feasible, coincides with the route for the general public.
