Status of Rulemaking

The U.S. Access Board is currently developing accessibility guidelines for access to outdoor developed areas under the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG). The U.S. Access Board's Regulatory Negotiation Committee on Outdoor Developed Areas addressed scoping and technical provisions for campgrounds, picnic areas, scenic overlooks, trails and beaches. The regulatory Negotiation Committee submitted recommendations to the U.S. Access Board in September 1999. The next step is for the U.S. Access Board to release a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on Outdoor Developed Areas for public comment.
