Happy Monday Everyone! In this edition of Maintenance Monday, one of our social media friends sent us this question.
I own a strip mall in San Jose, we have 10 retail stores, with 75 parking spots. How do we figure out the correct amount of handicap parking spots to have?
The answer is… Thank you, In this case, 75 stalls. Three would need to be accessible spaces (not handicapped), of which one of those would have to be van accessible. One thing to consider is the current count. If this property has 5 existing accessible spaces, it is best to put back those 5. The reasoning is that the standards are the minimum and it is not usually a good idea to decrease accessibility on a property. This is why it is important to plan these layouts with an ADA specialist, you don’t want to create a problem in the future by guessing or overestimating today.
