Part 2 - ADA Site Planning Review
Training will focus on review of elements of a site plan that can pose a challenge depending on someone’s abilities. Find out what to look for on a site plan, from things you may already be thinking about such as ramps, to less obvious challenges such as a circuitous sidewalk or poorly-marked crosswalk.
