ADA ENFORCEMENT TRENDS: PLAYGROUNDS, SPORTS FIELDS, AND MORE!
John N. McGovern, JD
Surprisingly, enforcement of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) remains robust, in this era of reducing the number of federal agency staff working on civil rights laws. This session will review enforcement methods and trends, discuss the ADA mandates for sites that are still not addressed by many Michigan units of local government, and draw a hard line between how to approach new design and existing facilities. We will also focus on two case studies, one regarding playground accessibility and the other regarding access to sports fields and courts. Attendees will leave with a great understanding of enforcement methods and trends, and information about how to apply the design standards to projects under their control today.
