Persons with disabilities may find it challenging to fully use and enjoy their dwelling without adequate accessible parking. The State of Iowa has specific laws and regulations regarding accessible parking for persons with disabilities. Iowa Code Chapter 321L (1990); 661Iowa Admin. Code Chapter 18 (321L) (2010). In addition, there are state and federal fair housing laws that prohibit discrimination in parking for persons with disabilities – the federal “Fair Housing Act,” the “Americans with Disabilities Act” (ADA), and the “Iowa Civil Rights Act of 1965.” 42 U.S.C. §§ 3600- 3620; 42 U.S.C. § 12101; and Iowa Code Chapter 216. It may at times be challenging for a housing provider to fully understand and correctly apply all of these laws to their particular off-street parking situations and needs; however, by reviewing these laws and answering certain key questions, this paper will assist providers in achieving greater understanding and help insure greater compliance with these laws.
