Senate Bill 515 – Limits The Cost Of Open-Sided Shade Structures On School And Community College Campuses
The California Building Standards Code requires that specified buildings, structures, and facilities be accessible to, and useable by, persons with disabilities, including when alterations or additions are made to existing buildings or facilities, or an accessible path of travel to the specific area of alteration or addition is provided.
SB 515 limits the cost of complying with the requirement to provide an accessible path of travel to a free-standing, open-sided shade structure project that meets specified requirements and that is on a school district, county office of education, charter school, or community college campus to 20% of the adjusted construction cost, as defined in Section 202 of Chapter 2 of Part 2 of Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations, of the shade structure project.
(SB 515 adds Chapter 9 (commencing with Section 17670) to Part 10.5 of Division 1 of Title 1 of the Education Code.)
