Below is part of a letter from April of 2010:
I looked around at all the people on that field today - the cheers of the fans, the smiles of the participants and I could feel the joy that our city will now experience when our children join football, soccer, track and know that we have a first class facility. "Would be nice to have a roof over our heads" I thought, but that's for another day.
Is Handicapped Accessibility for those who can not walk up the stairs also for another Day? Shouldn't people with disabilities be able to be a fan in the crowd cheering, be a participant with a smile on their face, or be part of a sport that the crowd is cheering for? Not if they can not walk up those stairs.
What would it take for Fawn Mountain Track & Field to become Handicapped Accessible and for there to be Accommodations so everyone in our community could enjoy Fawn Mountain Track & Field? All other sporting venues and facilities in our community are Handicapped Accessible, shouldn't Fawn Mountain Track & Field be to?
