Old Business/Statue Report
Foss Elevator Status
Work on the elevator is continuing and nearing completion. There have been delays to the project due to design issues and permit conflicts with the City of Shoreline. The College expects the elevator to be up and running by the end of February or beginning of March 2002.
Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
Kim and Claire will seek assistance from the Foundation to put together a celebration on the opening of the elevator.
Plan for Emergency Evacuation for People With Disabilities
April 2002 is the deadline for developing a policy. Kim has some information, and Paulette has a plan from another institution for members to examine. SSD will scan the information and mail it to committee members for discussion at the next meeting.
Campus Parking Spaces
Carwin Spearman, Manager of Safety and Security, did a study and found that the College needs to add 52 additional spaces to bring the College into compliance with the ADA. In the past the College has compensated for this deficit by allowing individuals who have a state disabled parking placard to park in any legal parking place whether designated for their constituency group or not. Solutions for this problem were discussed and will be included in the College’s master plan currently in development.
Additional handicapped parking for FOSS Bldg.
The possibility of adding an additional access space for the FOSS building and the possibility of putting a time limit on the existing space was discussed.
Renting Wheelchair Vans
Kim Thompson and Claire Stenson-Ball reported on information that they had acquired about a company that rents vans equipped with lifts and other accessibility features. The material will be kept in Paulette’s office.
Information Item: Supreme Court Ruling on ADA
Paulette reported on a Supreme Court ruling that limited the definition of major life activity and the accommodations that a person with a disability (in this case repetitive strain injury) can expect from an employer. She reported that the ruling will have little impact in Washington state as this state has legislation that dictates policies within the state and that are more accommodating.
Kim and Claire reported on the increasing cost of hiring interpreters. Strategies were discussed for providing more cost effective service. A problem with paying an interpreting agency was also discussed.
