ADA Compliance Information
Americans with Disabilities Act
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a program to determine compliance with state and federal regulations for making facilities accessible to people with disabilities. Newly constructed and remodeling projects in buildings to be made accessible for people with disabilities are required to meet these standards.
The ADA requirements are regulated on a case by case basis, each property having its own issues, which need to be addressed individually. Due to this variation, please contact Dave Walker
the City's CASP Inspector at (530) 542-6072.

Accessibility Upgrade for Existing Facilities Requirements
The California Building Code requires 20% accessibility upgrades for certain alterations, structural repairs, or additions to building or facilities used as public buildings, public accommodations, commercial buildings, or public housing. Please refer to the Accessibility Upgrade Worksheet
to determine if your project requires compliance.
