Alterations to Commercial Storefront for Accessibility (ADA)

The Alterations to Commercial Storefront for Accessibility Checklist (or Accessible Business Entrance) is a tool for a property owner, tenant, or designer to seek accessibility design guidance prior to submitting a permit application to modify an existing commercial storefront. The checklist should be completed and reviewed with a planner at the Planning Information Center as soon as accessibility work is known to be a part of the project’s scope.

Planning Department recommendations regarding particular scopes of work are intended to achieve accessibility as well as maintain or enhance the livability and sustainability of the subject building and its surroundings. Properties that qualify for use of the California Historical Building Code may be able to identify, or successfully demonstrate other acceptable means to meeting accessibility requirements.

For questions, you can call 415.558.6377, email pic@sfgov.org or visit the Planning Information Center (PIC) at 1660 Mission Street, First Floor, San Francisco, where planners are available to assist you.
