Skate park told comply or close

`[..] designers left out a critical component: handicapped accessibility. And if town meeting fails to approve money to provide that accessibility, a state board will order the park closed. [..]

“I find this very disconcerting,” said board member Myra Berloff, director of the state Office on Disability.

“(The park) seems to be a lovely place. It’s a place where the community gathers. I understand that these are errors, but I am inclined to say that until it is open to everyone, it is open to no one.”‘
