re: the state of PA....we have had handicap parking spaces alloted to each group of units. Each unit has 4 homes with 7 spaces and one hadicapped. Since we do not need the handicap spots because these sapces are assigned to us anyway, individually, we are short one spot in each section. Can we remove them?

Check the ADA rules, I believe there must be a certain number of handicaped spaces depending on the total number of parking spaces.

check and see if your HOA is required to follow the ADA. Then, follow the previous advice if you are, and do what you want if you aren't.

Not all HOA's must abide by the ADA.

Is the parking area private property or owned/maintained by the city/county? If the space if private property, and most HOA's are not subject to ADA, then you may be able to change the spots.

Brian is correct, after following ADA requirements for years, it is hard to forget the rules. However, it may be required by the city/county even if they are private streets or parking areas.

Our development is single family homes so no handicaped parking but we do have handicaped ramps in our sidewalks at each intersection and I don't mean just where the sidewalk meets the street. I assume this is a city requirement since their drawings for sidewalks shows them.

They allow someone in a wheel chair to cross the street and go onto the sidewalk where there is no street. For example where a street dead ends into another street the sidewalk across from the dead end street will have a handicaped ramp.
