    Since you serve Linn County have you had anything to say about the Art Museum in Cedar Rapids tearing out its accessible main entrance expecting people who need accessible entry to go around back?
    I know there is a parking lot around back, but the announced plan is to develop a “beautiful” new entry way in front that ties it in with the other buildings in downtown to draw citizens to the grassed areas in front of the buildings and then into the buildings. Since people in wheelchairs and others who need accessible entry are “sent around back” they will be unable to enjoy the beautiful new entrance.

    The new building has an accessible entrance in front. At this time the stairs as you come out the main entrance has no color change or tape or paint to let people with low vision know it is not solid concrete. A person could ride a power or regular wheelchair down the steps, as it is directly in front of the entrance as you go out the door. The accessible entrance is from the street to the front entrance at an angle that also ends up at the main entrance.
