Attachment L: Access to City of Tucson Programs Housed in Others' Facilities

 

Access to City Programs Housed in Others' Facilities: In order to ensure that the City's programs, services, and activities that are the subject of this Agreement and that are operated by the City at facilities owned or controlled by other entities, 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 three months of the effective date of this Agreement, the City will implement and report to the Department its written plan regarding how the City's programs, activities, and services, including polling and KIDCO, will be made accessible to persons with disabilities at Desert Willow Elementary School, located at 9400 East Esmond Loop:

 

a. Parking: The van accessible parking space does not have vertical signage and the signage for the other designated accessible parking spaces is mounted too low. 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. Standards §§ 4.6.4, 4.30.7(1).

Provide a curb ramp that is at least 36 inches wide, has a maximum slope of 1:12 (4.76 degrees), is located so that it cannot be obstructed by parked vehicles, and has a stable, firm, and slip-resistant surface with a detectable warning extending the full width and depth of the ramp. If the curb ramp is located where pedestrians must walk across it, provide either flared sides (with a maximum slope of 1:10 (5.71 degrees)) or handrails or guardrails to protect against cross traffic. Standards § 4.3.8, 4.7, Fig. 12.
