Utah Admin. Code R131-14-3 - Disabled Parking Assignments
Current through Bulletin 2022-07, April 1, 2022
The following state regulations pages link to this page.
State regulations are updated quarterly; we currently have two versions available. Below is a comparison between our most recent version and the prior quarterly release. More comparison features will be added as we have more versions to compare.
(1) The Capitol Preservation Board maintains accessible parking spaces as specified by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the ADA Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG). The number and placement of public, reserved and accessible parking spaces were established in agreement with the Utah State Building Official. All provisions of this rule shall be interpreted consistent with the ADA and applicable Federal law. In case of conflict, the provisions of the ADA and applicable Federal law shall supersede the provisions of this rule.
(2) Due to the limited number of available spaces, the assignment of reserved accessible spaces shall be made as follows:
(a) Agencies shall give first priority to individuals who have qualified for a parking accommodation pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act.
(b) Agencies shall give second priority to individuals who have a "permanent disabled parking placard" from the Utah State Tax Commission Division of Motor Vehicles.
(c) Agencies shall give third priority to individuals with "temporary disabled parking placards" from the Utah State Tax Commission Division of Motor Vehicles for the duration of their temporary condition as determined by their healthcare provider, if a space is available.
(d) Individuals who have disabled parking placards and do not receive a reserved accessible parking space may park in available non-assigned accessible parking spaces located on the East side of the Capitol Hill Grounds.
(e) Unassigned, reserved accessible spaces in the underground parking plaza may be assigned to non-disabled Elected Officials or employees; however, when a request for an accessible space is made by an Elected Official or employee with a disabled parking placard, any available accessible parking space shall be relinquished to the Elected Official or employee with an accessible parking placard in accordance with the above-described priorities.
(f) In the event an accessible space is not available, employees may request individualized accommodations through their ADA coordinator who will conduct a confidential individualized assessment with the employee and/or Elected Official. If a parking accommodation is not granted at the agency level, parking accommodation appeals shall be directed to the ADA coordinator within the Division of Risk Management (801.538.9560), who will review the assessment with the employee and/or Elected Official and work with the CPB to implement reasonable accommodations if appropriate.
