ADA & Accessibility

  • Parking – there is an HP parking area designated closest to the door
  • Entrance access – the path from HP parking to the front door is level, paved, and approximately 70′ long. It leads to a level concrete pad at the front door, with no steps or ramps to negotiate. Both inner and outer front doors are full-width, wheelchair friendly doors.
  • Interior – all activities are on the first (main) floor; no stairs are involved. The floor surface is new smooth hardwood flooring. Wheelchairs and walkers are welcome.
  • Accessible kitchenette with ADA sink and counter is available for hot and cold drinks.
  • Accessible bathroom is reached through a door from the kitchenette. It was designed and built following ADA specs for wheelchair turning radius, placement of fixtures, grab bars, etc.
  • Service animals are the only animals permitted inside the MCC; they must be fully trained, under your control and housebroken.
  • Assisted listening – we provide an assisted listening system for certain types of events, such as talks, presentations, concerts, etc. You may request the use of a portable receiver with headset to better hear sounds picked up by a microphone and broadcast in the room.
  • Medical emergencies and assistance – call 911 from the phone in the southeast corner of the room (to your left as you come in the front door). The Monterey Fire Company EMT squad will have someone on the site within 2 minutes of your call. We have a small first-aid kit on hand, on the phone table.
