Butrovich parking updates

Additional reserved spaces are needed to meet ADA accessibility standards.

Additional reserved spaced added to lot

Freshly painted lines on several new disabled parking spots are the first steps to bring the parking lot at Butrovich up to ADA accessibility standards. Over the past years some of the original signs disappeared, spaces were not marked and the number of accessible spaces fell below minimum standards.

The number of accessible parking spaces at a public facility is determined according to the ADA Accessibility Guidelines based on the total number of spaces in a lot.  Even the spaces marked visitor or reserved for facilities trucks are included in the count. (See Chart)

           Total Parking in Lot             Required Minimum Number of Accessible Spaces
                1 to 25.......................................1
                26 to 50.....................................2
                51 to 75.....................................3
                76 to 100...................................4
                101 to 150.................................5
                151 to 200.................................6
                201 to 300.................................7
                301 to 400.................................8
                401 to 500.................................9
                501 to 1000..............................2 percent of total
                1001 and over ........................20 plus 1 for each 100 over 1000

When the parking lot was expanded a few years ago additional parking spaces were added and the number of reserved spaces needed to increase. At least one needs to be van accessible. SAA will be involved in discussing options for the locations of the remaining spaces.

A bit about bikes

The seasonal motorcycle parking spaces are officially marked. This means cars can be ticketed for parking in the spaces. Motocycles however, so long as the additional vehicle fees have been paid to Parking Services, can park anywhere in the lot they choose.
