The ADA is a federal law that applies throughout the United States, including in your municipality. In addition to being aware of the ADA’s standards, you should know the accessibility requirements of your state and local jurisdiction. Although state and local accessibility standards are frequently similar to the ADA, they sometimes have different or stricter requirements.
The ADA does require the removal of barriers to accessibility in older buildings unless it can be shown that removing a barrier is not readily achievable. To understand the ADA’s requirements for existing facilities, read our post or feel free to contact us.
