My Senior Apt. Complex and those who live here and who are Wheelchair Bound do not have access(proper) to the Club House and Office. Neither are their any Handicapp acbsseicle doorways to any of the buildings on these premises. The Laundry just has a single door that I know would be difficult if not impossible for those in larger, specialized Wheelchairs to gain entry in. The doors around here are all standard doors like you would find in any building. This is a HUD contracted Senior Complex and there are 90 persons living her. There are at least 6(or perhaps more) people who are Wheelchair bound. One in particular uses a large Wheelchair and she must have someone with her at all times helping her in and out of doors and buildings. I might add that I wote two letters regarding this to ADA Compliance at the U.S. Dept. of Justice. They simply forwarded my letters onto HUD. HUD then contacted me and asked How was I injured? I would like to state that I'm ambulatory. I have not lost the ability to get around. I do have diabetes and it greatlyaffected my vision at one time(Diabetic Retinopathy). The mailboxes that are outside which allow for oversized items(such as parcels and other oversized items) do not have legible numbers of the boxes on the tags(with the key). Some of these numbers are in Pencil. I have difficulty reading which box my package is in because of my vision impairment. Not all of the key tags have legible numbers.
