What does access look like?

Just for fun, here’s a lo-res video clip of the first scooter/chair use of a ramp/entry the Idaho Housing and Finance Association (IHFA) had constructed (in partnership with the good people at Boise Parks and Recreation) between our east parking lot and Julia Davis Park. The historic gate was not wheelchair accessible, so our building manager worked closely with the BP&R reps and our contractor a few years ago to create a better option. It required lots of communication and some new thinking, but it has made a huge difference for everyone...people using scooters or wheelchairs, parents with strollers, and those of us who bike to work.
