From: <br />Sent: <br />To: <br />Subject: <br />MEMO from Sunshine <br />TO: RPV City COUNCIL <br /> <br />Tuesday, June 04, 2013 5:12 PM <br />cc <br />Vote "no" on the whole consent calendar and then <br />RE: June 4, 2013 City Council Meeting Agenda Item 4 <br />The ADA is not an unfunded mandate. It is a civil law. The name of the game is "risk management". I <br />helped to write the State of California criteria for ADA compliance. <br />The city may fund whatever improvements to make our City more "accessible" to people with disabilities that <br />the City Council chooses. Nobody has to do anything but die. Every decision has it's consequences. <br />RPV Staff is recommending that a lot of money be spent to avoid law suits filed by annoyed, disabled people. <br />"Barrier free" is a "nice" thing. City Hall has an elevator to the second floor. <br />Take the risk. Receive and file. Fund this Transition Plan some <br />time after we have fixed all of the storm drains and the emergency <br />circulation corridors. <br />4. City of Rancho Palos Verdes Accessibility Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan (Motahari) <br />Recommendation: 1) ADOPT RESOLUTION NO. 2013-_, A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL <br />OF THE CITY OF RANCHO PALOS VERDES APPROVING THE CITY OF RANCHO PALOS VERDES <br />ACCESSIBILITY SELF-EVALUATION AND TRANSITION PLAN; and, 2) Direct staff to initiate measure <br />to construct the recommended ADA Improvements consistent with the attached implementation plan <br />(Transition Plan). <br />PS: Ask Mr. Motahari how deep the I beams need to be for the proposed Sutter wall on the City's trail <br />easement on the Narbonne Right of Way just north of Sunnyside Ridge Road so that the CIP has an <br />accurate cost estimate to restore this historic trail. <br />1
