The city of Tucson may have to find an estimated $17 million to bring many of its facilities into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Under a 2005 settlement agreement with the U.S. Justice Department, the city spent the past two years completing a self-audit of 150 of its facilities to identify any shortcomings under the law, passed in 1992.
The city found more than 2,800 problems, with the bulk centered in parks facilities, said Liana Perez, director of the city's equal opportunity office.
