Stepping Thru – Vignette Series: Electric Vehicle Charging Stations & Access

DESCRIPTION

As Electric Vehicles become more prevalent, the question arises of what to do for Access and even whether or not they are required to be accessible. Although not specifically mentioned in the ADA Standards, the prevailing requirement in the implementing regulations requires a measure of access for all. So if an element is available to the able-bodied population, then it should also be available for those with a disability. Since there are no ADA scoping and technical requirements what do you do? California has developed new requirements being implemented January 1, 2017 which is what we will look at.
