Pools not accessible?
Some pools in our neighborhood are not wheelchair accessible. (Riverbank State Park's pool at 145th St. and the JCC pool are accessible; the Paris pool and the 65th St. Y pool are not.)
Rules requiring public pools to be accessible were supposed to go into effect on March 15, 2012, but are on hold because some businesses objected.
Let the Department of Justice know your views: the DOJ is accepting public comments about the accessible pool regulations until April 3, 2012.
