Canines looking to fetch tennis balls, run through the grass at top speeds and wrestle with other four-legged friends, all free from the confines of a leash, can now do so at a second public park in Auburn.

A new dog park at Auburn’s Town Creek Park off South Gay Street opened on April 21, and all dogs and their owners are invited to enjoy the outdoors in a dog-friendly environment.

The park is located to the right of the restrooms inside the existing green space at Town Creek along the tree line. At 200 feet by 50 feet, it is slightly smaller than the dog park at Kiesel Park off Chadwick Lane, the only other designated dog park in the city. News by ALC Construction

Regardless of civic center vote, ADA problems need a fix

Arena ADA Compliance
Arena ADA Compliance

Proponents of the expansion say that the cost to fix the ADA problems is $38 million. Whatever the cost, something has to be done.

Michael Brunick knows the difficulties of getting around the Barnett Arena first hand.
“The ADA seating is in a place where the view isn’t very good and the egress in case of a problem is scary,” Brunick said.
Brunick isn’t focused on why this is being addressed now. He’s just glad it is.
“For me its kind of a moral issue,” he said. “I know everyone wants to say ‘Oh, we really want to fix the ADA,’ but when it comes down to spend the penny for it they very rarely want to vote for it.”
The Justice Department identified many ADA deficiencies in the arena. Read More…

‘Missing Link’ in San Fernando Valley L.A. River Trail Launches

‘Missing Link’ in San Fernando Valley L.A. River Trail Launches

It didn’t look like much right then. The overcast sky combined with the interminable brown and gray of dirt path meeting concrete didn’t help much either, but in by spring 2016, this overlooked piece of land just north of Ventura Boulevard will be replaced with a $2-million Zev Yaroslavsky L.A. River Greenway Trail, a new half-mile trail dotted with more than 4,000 native trees and plants including Coast Live Oak, Toyons, California poppy flowers. It would connect a 2.5 mile section of the river trail from Whitsett Avenue almost to the CBS Studios and a 2-mile section from Coldwater Canyon upstream.

“It will create five miles of continuous pathways, the longest in San Fernando Valley,” said Esther Feldman, President of Community Conservation Solutions (CCS), the non-profit organization who led the development of the project, addressing a crowd of more than 140 people. CCS also helped piece together the public and private funding to realize the trail. Funding came from the California Natural Resource Agency, Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy, Caltrans, and Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky’s discretionary Proposition A Regional Park and Open Space fund. Apart from those, the city of Los Angeles and the Studio City Residents Associated has also committed money.

Los Gatos: Museums get new name, and soon new home

There’s a name change in the works for the Museums of Los Gatos–it’s NUMU, and it stands for the New Museum Los Gatos that opens next year at the civic center. The art museum on Tait Avenue and the history museum at Forbes Mill will be combined into one facility, taking over the old library that has been mostly vacant since February 2011.

Earlier this month the town council appropriated nearly $1.4 million to upgrade the old library building with new heating, air conditioning, restrooms, lighting and an ADA-compliant elevator.
“This project has several themes,” parks and public works director Matt Morley said. “The most important of these may be the focus on accessibility–ensuring through the installation of a new elevator, a revamped stairwell and reconstructed restrooms that all patrons have access to the full space.” Read More…

Streamwood man’s letters to businesses target ADA compliance

Melissa Jaros didn’t know what to think when she received an unexpected letter in the mail on Aug. 29.
A man she didn’t know was threatening to sue her if she didn’t send him $5,000 and make changes to the parking lot of her Streamwood business, Grooming Unleashed.
Streamwood lawyer threatens lawsuits over lack of handicapped spaces
The letter, written by disabled Streamwood resident Andrew Straw, stated Jaros’ business is in violation of the American with Disabilities Act and because of that, he was seeking damages and a quick fix that included curb cuts and better signage for handicapped parking.

Confused and a bit offended, Jaros threw out the letter.

Grooming Unleashed is one of more than a dozen businesses Straw sent the correspondence to a few weeks ago. His demand letters have created a stir among members of the village’s business community, many of whom are suspicious of his intentions. The executive director of the Streamwood Chamber of Commerce even called police after getting the letter, worried it was a scam.

National Council on Disability Explores Scope of and Solutions to Veterans Backlog

ADA Compliance Specialist
ALC Construction, llc

In partnership with current and former service members, the National Council on Disability (NCD) – an independent federal agency that advises the President, Congress and other federal agencies on disability policy – has released a report titled,  “Clearing the Backlog and Facilitating Benefits for America’s Veterans.” The 80-page report includes opinions and evaluations by key stakeholders, buoyed by the insights of experts, in addressing the current state of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) disability claims backlog.

NCD thanks Paralyzed Veterans of America for numerous, invaluable contributions in preparing this report.

“In the same spirit with which Americans honor all Veterans for their service to our country, the National Council on Disability has chosen National Military Families month and the day after Veterans Day to offer these recommendations to help clear the backlog in getting necessary supports to U.S. Veterans,” said NCD member Captain Jonathan Kuniholm, USMC (Retired). “Making good on the promises made to Veterans with service-connected disabilities and health issues, financial uncertainty, and other hardships when adjusting to civilian life in a timely manner is the least that we can do for those ‘who shall have borne the battle.’ NCD hopes this report can facilitate meaningful improvements across numerous areas of concern.”

“NCD’s findings and recommendations focus on necessary actions that need to be taken to reduce the VA claims backlog,” said NCD member Janice Lehrer-Stein. “Improvements have been made, but more needs to be done. NCD recognizes the important and ongoing progress that has been made to date and remains available to assist in the collaboration of all federal agencies to find the best and most coordinated way forward.”

ADA Title I: Employment

ADA Compliance Specialist
ALC Construction, llc Construction Management

Title I requires employers with 15 or more employees to provide qualified individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to benefit from the full range of employment-related opportunities available to others. For example, it prohibits discrimination in recruitment, hiring, promotions, training, pay, social activities, and other privileges of employment. It restricts questions that can be asked about an applicant’s disability before a job offer is made, and it requires that employers make reasonable accommodation to the known physical or mental limitations of otherwise qualified individuals with disabilities, unless it results in undue hardship. Religious entities with 15 or more employees are covered under title I.

Title I complaints must be filed with the U. S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) within 180 days of the date of discrimination, or 300 days if the charge is filed with a designated State or local fair employment practice agency. Individuals may file a lawsuit in Federal court only after they receive a “right-to-sue” letter from the EEOC.

Charges of employment discrimination on the basis of disability may be filed at any U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission field office. Field offices are located in 50 cities throughout the U.S. and are listed in most telephone directories under “U.S. Government.” For the appropriate EEOC field office in your geographic area, contact:

(800) 669-4000 (voice)
(800) 669-6820 (TTY)

Publications and information on EEOC-enforced laws may be obtained by calling:

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 requires the Department of Justice, along with other Federal agencies, to provide “technical assistance to individuals and insitutions that have rights or duties” under this law. The Department produced technical assistance materials for its 1991 ADA regulations implementing Title II (State and local governments) and Title III (public accommodations and non-profit service providers) and again in 2010 when the Department revised its ADA regulations for both titles.
