II. Narrative Section 
Project Justification (Essay)
Project Description: Signage inside and outside of the museum will be redone to comply with ADA regulations. This will include: height adjustments of signage; character heights; outdoor parking signs and wheel stops. An assisted listening system will be installed to assist visitors who have difficulty reading or understanding exhibit texts. Also purchase and installation of a new accessible fixed high/low ADA drinking fountain and a concrete route of travel to the outdoor exhibits.
Project Justification: This project is recommended by the Nevada SPWB in its facility report of 2008 and is precipitated by a need to bring the agency into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Not only will that be a result, but all museum visitors will be served by better signage, dual level drinking fountain, concrete travel path, and assisted listening system.
Project Background Information: This project was recommended by the Nevada SPWB in a 2008 facility report and prior funding has not be requested.
Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
Type of equipment to be replaced: Drinking fountain

Will this project require any hazardous material abatement? Unknown
Ramifications if the Project is not Approved
(Short Essay): If this project is not approved, the agency will be out of compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act which could lead to complaints being filed with federal agencies. It would also continue to exclude certain segments of the public from being able to completely utilized and enjoy the exhibits and events the museum has to offer. Better and more reliable signage and safe travel paths will also increase the safety of the general public and lower the chances of liability claims against the State.
