Sweet, Small Victory: Handicap Sidewalk RampsJuly 20, 2010 by Bill Strong
We're celebrating a small, but very sweet victory in the Strong household. Back in December 2008, I posted about how inaccessible our neighborhood sidewalks are. I was pretty annoying about the whole thing with the City -- and then a little more annoying. Well persistence paid off! And while the project is starting a little later than the original Fall 2009 City estimate, nevertheless ground has officially been broken to make way for the shiny new accessible sidewalk ramps going in all the way down our entire street.Thank you City of Santa Barbara for listening and taking steps to make this beautiful city accessible and enjoyable for everyone. We greatly appreciate it! And Gwendolyn sends your entire staff high-fives and thumbs-up!
