IMPAC Helps Community Associations Comply with State Disabilities Law

IMPAC Property Management of Manchester, New Jersey, devotes itself to enhancing the services offered to members of its homeowners’ associations and community associations. IMPAC Property Management also works with residential managers to ensure that properties comply with New Jersey’s safety requirements.

An example of a state safety law is the code governing parking for persons with physical disabilities. The law identifies those eligible as persons with wheelchair-confining conditions, as well as difficulties walking and dangerous deficits of sight, hearing, or perception.

Communities must set aside 1 percent, or at least one parking space, to persons with disabilities. (This does not apply to housing with less than five units.) Such spaces must be marked with the International Symbol of Access and the words “This space reserved for physically handicapped drivers.” When feasible, the space should measure 12 feet in width. This allows persons with disabilities to move freely in a wheelchair, crutches, or braces from either side of their vehicle. In addition, the space(s) should be placed so that persons with disabilities have access without needing to move between or behind parked cars. Property owners should also build curb ramps when possible.
