SUBJECT: Jail ADA Modifications Project
The County conducted an evaluation of ADA issues related to inmates with mobility disabilities who are incarcerated at County jail facilities. Then, as part of an ongoing effort to ensure compliance with all ADA-related requirements, County Counsel requested additional analysis and a comprehensive evaluation of the Department of Correction’s ADA compliance as related to non-mobility disabilities. Addressing both of these evaluations requires updates to ADA accommodations within the jail facilities. This recommendation supports the development of the initial design solutions and construction cost estimates to determine the scope and cost magnitude of potential ADA modifications.
