minimum exterior walkway step height

(OP)
I am evaluating a sidewalk which has one side adjacent to a public building and the other side abuts a street/parking lot for code compliance.  The step up from the pavement to the sidewalk ranges from 3-3.75 inches.  Does anyone know if this is a code violation?  This is located in Ohio and is not along the "accessible path" for the building.  I am familiar with the 4" step minimum in a building egress path but need to determine if there is a similar issue for a step down from a sidewalk to a street leading to parking.  Any pointers would be appreciated.

Thanks.
