Access Board NPRM re Shared Use Paths
We, the Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (Access Board), issued an advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) announcing our intent to develop accessibility guidelines for shared used paths. Shared use paths are multi-use paths designed primarily for use by bicyclists and pedestrians, including pedestrians with disabilities, for transportation and recreation purposes. Shared use paths are physically separated from motor vehicle traffic by an open space or barrier, and are either within the highway right-of-way or within an independent right-of-way. We noted in the ANPRM that we are considering including accessibility guidelines for shared use paths in the accessibility guidelines that we are developing for sidewalks and other pedestrian facilities in the public right-of-way. We subsequently issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) requesting comments on proposed accessibility guidelines for pedestrian facilities in the public right-of-way. The NPRM did not include specific provisions for shared use paths. We are issuing this supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (SNPRM) to include specific provisions for shared use paths in the proposed accessibility guidelines for pedestrian facilities in the public right-of-way. The proposed accessibility guidelines would apply to the design, construction, and alteration of pedestrian facilities in the public right-of-way, including shared use paths, covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Architectural Barriers Act, and would ensure that the facilities are readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities.

Intro to PROWAAC Guidelines 7/26/2011
The Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board is proposing accessibility guidelines for the design, construction, and alteration of pedestrian facilities in the public right-of-way. The guidelines ensure that sidewalks, pedestrian street crossings, pedestrian signals, and other facilities for pedestrian circulation and use constructed or altered in the public right-of-way by state and local governments are readily accessible to and usable by pedestrians with disabilities. When the guidelines are adopted, with or without additions and modifications, as accessibility standards in regulations issued by other federal agencies implementing the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and the Architectural Barriers Act, compliance with the accessibility standards is mandatory.

National Dis Rights Law Firm
REEC was founded in 2013 by the law nerds who used to be the firm of Fox & Robertson — Tim Fox and Amy Robertson — to provide a platform for more creative approaches to civil rights law than were available through a private firm, including but not limited to educational materials featuring puppies.
At F&R, we litigated class and individual civil rights cases with a focus on disability rights. Representative cases include the largest settlement of a disability rights public accommodations case, as well as other cases under the Americans with Disabilities Act against national fast-food chains, city governments, theaters and arenas, and retail stores based on their inaccessible premises and/or policies of segregation, employment discrimination cases based on age, race, and disability, and fair housing cases against landlords and developers for inaccessible premises or discriminatory policies.
We have been certified as class counsel in a number of class actions brought under state and/or federal disability rights laws, including: Vallabhapurapu v. Burger King Corp., 11-cv-00667-WHA (N.D. Cal.); Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition v. Abercrombie & Fitch Co., 09-cv-2757-WYD-KMT (D. Colo.); Castaneda v. Burger King Corp., 08-cv-4262-WHA (N.D. Cal.); Rossart v. Developmental Pathways, Inc., Case No. 06CV4479 (Dist. Ct. Denver, CO); National Federation of the Blind v. E*Trade Access, Inc., Civ. Action No. 03-11206-MEL (D. Mass.); Moeller v. Taco Bell, No. 02-cv-5849 PJH (N.D. Cal.); Lucas v. Kmart Corp., 99-cv-01923-JLK (D. Colo.); Farrar-Kuhn v. Conoco, Inc., Civil Action No. 99-M-2086 (D. Colo.); Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition et al. v. Taco Bell Corp., Civil Action No. 97-B-2135 (D. Colo.); Cross-Disability Coalition v. Fey Concert Company, Civil Action No. 97-Z-1586 (D. Colo.).
You can read more about Fox & Robertson’s cases — and plagiarize our pleadings — on F&R’s case page and can read the incisive and hilarious posts of the FoxRobBlog, which we’re saving for posterity.
