United Rentals : Rules require no discrimination

I read with much empathy Ms. Archambault's letter of disappointment at BottleRock for the less-than-stellar Americans with Disabilities Act accommodations.

As a licensed architect, I am obligated to uphold in the 1990 federal law requiring access to all buildings and facilities for all persons regardless of their abilities. I tell my intern architects and clients the single most important issue is: thou shall not discriminate. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

I, too, was both annoyed and jostled by the crowds at the port-a-potties. Everyone was subjected to less-than-stellar facilities and had to wait. However, I don't think creating closer port-a-potties to the ADA platform would be fair to all persons regardless of their abilities and thus would be discriminatory.

When I designed the United Rentals office and maintenance building, it was expected to be male mechanics. But, of course we can't discriminate so we provided women's restrooms and changing facilities with handicapped accessibility for wheelchairs. We also had to provide access to the closest bus stop. Would United Rentals ever hire a wheelchair bound woman mechanic traveling via bus? I don't know but we have to plan for any event.

When do ADA requirements become too onerous? Of course we're all are used to ADA accessible parking spaces in the front of all buildings. Now, the state requires electric vehicle charging stations, or EVCS. Should they be handicapped-accessible, and should they be ADA van ready? Even though there are no handicapped electric vehicle vans on the market currently? I ponder the question.

It's unfortunate that Ms. Archambault felt the ADA platform was too small to handle all those in need. However, the times I visited the platform it was not full. I think it was excellent that you, the assistant to your daughter, could share the platform with her. Frankly, you had better seats than those of us that had to brave the throngs in the field. I would think you'd be happier.

I am not defending Latitude 38 for their less-than-stellar accommodations. I can only offer the ultimate litmus test: do not discriminate. That's the law.
