ADA Guidelines

Accessible Aberdeen
The City Planning Department follows the guidelines set forth by the American National Standard Institute (ANSI) for Accessible and Usable Buildings and Facilities. Utilizing these guidelines and local ordinances, our building inspectors seek to inform builders and evaluate new construction and remodeling projects with the goal of making properties reasonably accessible to those with additional challenges.

For many developments, accessibilty for those with greater needs begins in the parking lot. The link below provides some basic information on accessible parking issues such as:
  • Parking Space Dimensions
  • Access Aisle Requirements
  • Various Signage Types & Correct Placement
  • Adequate Number of Accessible Spaces
