Our city of Mishawaka, even though currently embroiled in an untenable 20 million dollar civil rights disability discrimination lawsuit, continues to construct walkways, boat ramps, stairs, seating, parking, picnic and playground areas that will serve those without mobility disabilities well. These new works are grossly out of compliance with the Access Board's Architectural Requirements. The "riverwalk" has over 12,600 forensically documented architectural barriers. If you have any mobility disabilities, you need to take this riverwalk seriously. There are many, many architectural barriers that will place you in imminent peril. From stepping over the edge of an improper walk and falling into the river, or stumbling into the oncoming traffic. Because the concrete construction and curb cuts are sub-standard, the cross slopes and rises are too steep, too steep, and too steep, take every step very cautiously. When our Mayor and city council seem to construct everything from roadways to parkways with the intent on driving out all of us with impairments, its no wonder people call our town a Disabled Free Zone.
