A month ago, I drove by and was pleasantly surprised to find a nice sign in the front directing wheelchair users to the back, a new permit parking space in the back, and a big sign asking people to ring the bell at the accessible entrance. Good job!
My letter to the editor was in the paper (I would link to the letter, but the Daily Times Call doesn’t keep archives) today:
I would like to thank Caroline Welker, General Manager of Cheese Importers on South Pratt Parkway, for her work in making the store more accessible to the disabled.
Cheese Importers had a no-step entrance in the back, but no signs to direct customers or parking. Now there are signs, parking, and a call bell, and customers who use wheelchairs no longer need to call ahead in order to shop there.
July 26th is the 13th anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act. I hope that other Longmont businesses that are not yet accessible will follow Cheese Importers’ example.
