The Brady streetscaping project hit the construction news web site this morning. If I could figure out how to put the overall plan on here I would.  Looks like it spans from Boston to Elgin and includes Brady and Archer.  Mainly appears like it will be tree wells on the side walks, angled parking, and I would assume bricked or partially bricked sidewalks.  Perhaps if SXSW is an isqft subscriber he can figure out how to post this for the rest of you.

Good looking pool but not apparently compliant with ADA regulations which go into effect this year unless they plan a portable lifting device.

Nice.  Whoever said government regs were costing small business was certainly lying.  Roll Eyes

Is that going to be required of every public pool or is there a grandfather clause?

Grandfather clause may or may not happen.  I was visiting the former home of Vice President John Nance Garner which is now a small museum in Uvalde, Texas.  Access to the second floor was closed to everyone because there was no elevator, only stairs.

There is no lift in the pool at the Y but the one-legged woman gets in and out of it just fine.

(I know it sounds like the setup for a joke, but it's not this time)

I would argue that a great percentage of the people who require a lift to get into a pool, would also lack the ability to use the pool once in it.

Whoah there.  Don't be trying to apply logic and common sense to federal regulations.  ;-)

What does use of a pool entail? I would argue that all of the below are (some of the but not all of the potential) pool uses:
drinking
drowning
flailing about
floating
urinating
sinking
soaking
splashing
swiming

I suspect that requirement will shutter most every public pool in Tulsa if there's no grandfather clause.  I know Lortondale struggles to open every year as well as the 5300 club in the same neighborhood.

Grizz- when I was reading your post I was reminded that back when Lee's bicycles was at 81st & Memorial on the NW corner, there was also a paintball supply store in the center.  The two handicap spots were in front of the bike shop and paintball store.  Somewhat ironic, don't you think?

I am part of a trail riding club (motor cycles,quads,horses,mountain bikes and hiking)that manages land to ride upon; we had to put in HC parking.
Recently the state paid us a visit and told us to fine grade up to the edge of the sidewalks and grind the stumps in the camping area or paint them white.
