I want to vent.....

I get my mental & physical health care @ a community health center. They do not own the building, so when whoever did decided to upgrade the building and parking the center lost ALL the parking spaces, including the handicapped ones IN FRONT OF THE BUILDING. There is a parking lot 1/4 mile away and I CANNOT walk that far even using my rolling walker. I am so upset and pissed right now.

1. Take that anger and lodge a complaint. The ADA is not just a good idea, it's the law. HP parking

is usually required by town, city and state codes for any buildings' upgrades.

A health care facility's building owner would certainly need to comply before being able to get an occupancy permit signed.

2. good idea

I will head back downtown and take pictures as well tomorrow. Today that area is/will be blocked for the big fireworks event tonight. The health center is partially run on county money, so I will call the commissioners office as well. Thank you for the idea.

3. Good luck to you. Photos are a good idea, as well as getting some others to sign on to

either an online petition, or a paper one. Town officials can become very agreeable if they think there are more than a single citizen interesting in seeing the laws actually followed.
