State Plan for Removal of Architectural Barriers to the Handicapped in Colorado Higher Education.
Colorado Commission on Higher Education, Denver.
The procedures, assumptions, and recommendations of a statewide plan for the elimination of architectural barriers in all Colorado institutions of higher education are detailed. The first sections of the report concern the number and nature of those having physical disabilities, available statistical data on a national and a state level, and arguments for the removal of architectural barriers. Text and illustrations show the accepted national standard relating to barrier-free design of buildings. The major section of the work contains the results of building-by-building surveys to identify architectural barriers on each of the campuses in Colorado. Recommendations for each campus consist of building survey results, recommendations, and estimated costs of barrier removal. Also included in the recommendations for each campus is a summary sheet of campus-wide priorities. The appendixes contain correspondence and forms related to development of the statewide plan, and the Colorado Architectural Barriers Statute. (Author/MLF)
