Understanding The Draft Final Accessibility Guidelines For Outdoor Developed Areas

Thursday, December 3, 2009


On October 19, 2009, the U.S. Access Board released draft final guidelines for trails, picnic and camping facilities, and beach access routes. Once finalized, these guidelines will apply to outdoor sites managed by the Federal government, including national parks and recreation areas covered by the Architectural Barriers Act. This webinar session will provide participants with the opportunity to better understand the draft guidelines. This session will also highlight how the conditions for exceptions apply to trails and beach access routes, review "outdoor constructed features", and discuss the requirements for outdoor recreation routes and beach access routes. An opportunity for questions and answers will also be provided.
