Universal Access

Escambia County owns and maintains publicly accessible facilities and parks on Santa Rosa Island (Pensacola Beach) and Perdido Key. While all new improvements must meet the latest Americans with Disabilities Act Standards, many of the older public facilities, parks, and infrastructure do not meet the needs and desires of disabled citizens today.

Escambia County selected Project Universal Access as one of ten initial projects to fund with Escambia County’s RESTORE Direct Component (Pot 1) allocation. The Deepwater Horizon oil spill led to passage of the RESTORE Act in 2012. The Act dedicates 80% of all Clean Water Act penalties related to the spill to the Gulf Coast Restoration Trust Fund. The RESTORE Act is comprised of five funding components including the Direct Component. The Universal Public Access Plan shall meet the goals and objectives outlined in the Universal Public Access Plan Notice of Award and shall be compliant with the RESTORE Act and all applicable rules and laws.  

This project will identify universal public access deficiencies on Pensacola Beach and Perdido Key, develop a universal access plan, and design priority projects identified in the plan. Deficiencies will be identified through a field evaluation of existing County facilities, parks, and infrastructure.
