Are the pools still open


#1

With the new federal regulations requiring lifts for disabled persons are the pools still open or closed for renovation


#2

Still open!


#3

Seems like there has been an extension for compliance for quite some considerable time according to the article below.

Have you been listening to Neal Boortz?


#5

I haven’t, I was just trying to help with the question of whether the pools are closed for renovation to comply with the new regulations.

I have no idea who he is.


#6

Sorry Dixie- I was referring to Ron… I did not make that clear.


#7

No I haven’t, There was a story in the local paper where I am working that the city pool might be closed for just this reason and thy didn’t mention any extension.
That’s what I get for reading the local paper


#8

I don’t think the pools at Disney’s resorts will need the lifts. From what I heard if there is a gentle sloop into the pool the lift is unneeded.


#9

Please say it isn’t so, and because Dixie is in the UK, it most likely isn’t so:laugh:

Don’t be too hard on your local press.
They have more to do with far less and are facing extinction.

Ok, I could google it but who is Neal Boortz?


#12

Neal Boortz is an American talk radio host from Atlanta GA. He is a libertarian and one of the authors of the Fair Tax (fairfax.org). His show is primarily political pushing libertarian thought.

I was flipping channels the other day, and he was going on and on about this very subject. I bet he pulled the story from the newspaper where the article was read…


#14

That’s Ok Han:heart:


#15

You’re right SG it definitely isn’t so :laugh:


#16

thank you, tigger :smile:

That’s what I was thinking for the pools with zero entry. Those that aren’t though may need a few modifications. But knowing Disney I could see them offering a huge discount on accomodations to 100% Disabled non-ambulatory guests needing this at the resorts with zero entry pools to avoid having to change. That would be a win-win if allowed.
