Get Your Doorways Inspected for Accessibility YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN MORE TIME

In 2016, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed Ordinance No. 51-16, or the Mandatory Disability Access Improvements. In September 2021, the law was amended.

This is a law that only applies to  San Francisco.  Ordinance No. 51-16, requires property and business owners to make all primary entrances to their businesses accessible for people with disabilities.

The first deadline for compliance was in May 23, 2018. Property owners and operators now have another opportunity to bring their doorways into compliance.

The law requires property owners and tenants to make their business entrances physically accessible. This law helps property owners and their tenants achieve access to their business to the greatest extent possible.

This law is in addition to state and Federal accessibility requirements that property owners must meet under the Americans with Disabilities Act Title III.
