Disability Parking Quick Reference Design Guide
Accessibility Standards have been changing over the past several years. The Minnesota State Council on Disability has prepared this quick reference guide to help you ensure that your parking is accessible to all of your customers, clients, tenants, and employees. Its good business!
Most accessible parking spaces created prior to July 2007 were permitted to have access aisles only 5 feet wide, however in 2007 the code changed to require 8-foot access aisles in all new and reconfigured disability parking spaces. Technically, accessible parking areas with 5- foot access aisles that have not been sealcoated, resurfaced, or reconfigured in any way may be re-painted with 5-foot access aisles, however, in January of 2015 the Minnesota State Building Code, Chapter 1341 was updated with the following language: Restriping. Renewing existing parking striping shall be allowed. New striping, due to sealcoating, resurfacing, reconfiguration of parking spaces, or other reason, shall provide accessible spaces in compliance with sections 1106.1 to 1106.7. If you own or operate a parking lot that is out of compliance with updated codes, the Minnesota State Council on Disability encourages you to update your accessible parking areas. Compliance with current code minimizes your risks of complaints and litigation AND its good business!
