Letter: Who pays for Tiger Hollow?

To the Editor:

A frequent topic discussed over the years by the Commission for Accessibility (formerly the Commission for the Disabled) is the lack of accessibility to Tiger Hollow for persons who use wheelchairs or those whose disability makes it impossible to negotiate the steep slopes to the venue. The Commission has also heard concerns about the absence of vehicle access and handicap parking, which would make transport to the lower level feasible for persons with mobility challenges.

Such access is mandated by the Americans with Disabilities Act and should be included in any design to update the facility. Jill Bornstein’s inclusion of Accessibility in her presentation reflects a refreshing concern for these issues.
