Who Needs an Elevator? 1. Those who use wheelchairs and mobility scooters. 2. Parents with strollers. 3. Aging parishioners and guests. As one gets older, long stairways become exhausting and dangerous. 4. Those who are injured. We are all one sprained ankle away from needing an elevator to participate fully in the great things that happen in our building.
Dorchester Ave Entrance
Beautiful limestone and brick-clad entrance. New, legitimately accessible wheelchair and stroller ramp. Entrance to ramp where the steps are — right now, entrance to ramp is far away from where others enter. Bigger landing, so that wheelchairs, scooters, and strollers can get around the open front doors. Rebuild the crumbling steps. New concrete will fix problem of water leaking into storage space and Nursery below.
Parking Lot Entrances
New, welcoming ramp clearly visible from parking lot — right now, the ramp is hidden. Provide a more direct path to the north door — right now, it's circuitous and difficult to negotiate. Remove trash cans from the area.
