The American Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines
The American Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) is effective for any renovations, major alterations and most new construction situations that commenced since January 26, 1992.
Enforcement of the Act rests with the United States Department of Justice. Compliance with the Telford Borough Building Code may not relieve you of your responsibility to comply with the ADAAG. The Borough's review of your submission will be based upon the adopted building code (2000 Int. Building Code as amended) but will not be pursuant to the ADAAG, which is responsibility of the applicant.
A shed over 100-sq. ft. must have a foundation and is not considered portable. Therefore a shed of more than 100 sq. ft cannot be placed with three (3) feet of the rear and /or side property lines (See exhibit "F").
EASEMENTS are a right of way by another for the purpose of access to utilities by the Borough, Utility Company, or 3rd party (other than the owner). Easements must be kept free & clear of any structures, fences or change in grade by the owner of the property.
