While the old saying “you only get one chance to make a first impression” does not matter, it actually does...when it comes to parking lots and driveways.
ADA and Designated Parking
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a law signed in 1990 that prohibits discrimination against differently-abled individuals, affects every establishment. Regardless of company size, all businesses must have the proper amount of handicapped-accessible parking stalls and required van parking spaces.
Many municipalities require a newly constructed parking lot (at commercial or large residential properties) to be stripped up to ADA requirements before an operating permit is issued. In addition, they must also have a minimum number of parking spaces per 1,000 square feet of utilized facility.
What do do before striping and marking?
Before marking a parking lot, it is important to consider whether a parking lot needs designated parking spaces for disabled persons, customers, employees, visitors, or other individuals.
