* Kay-aKcess is compliant with the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design. Which included recreation facilities for the first time. The Americans with Disabilities Act(ADA.) requires state and local governments, businesses and non-profit organizations to provide goods, services and programs to people with disabilities on an equal basis with the rest of the public. Full compliance is required for new construction and alterations. Because recreation facilities were not included in the 1991 ADA Standards, they are not subject to the safe harbor exemption. State and local governments must make these items accessible if necessary to ensure program accessibility, unless an undue burden would result. Public accommodations must remove architectural barriers to these items.
