More accessible Metro
Detroit Metropolitan Airport will conduct a survey of its accessibility, appoint two employees to address accessibility concerns, consider a volunteer board on accessibility policy and add accessibility information to the airport website. Did airport officials just get feeling proactive? Of course not. The action is being taken to ward off legal action threatened by a group of Detroit advocates for the disabled. With the moves by the airport, the advocates have dropped their plans for a lawsuit. "This is a really great blueprint that is going to bring Metro Airport up to the same standard that other airports are functioning at," said attorney Richard Bernstein, who is blind and spearheaded the advocacy group. Congrats to Bernstein's group for providing the needed push.
