Corlett parking lot prep creates accessibility issues

BY MICHAEL DOLAN

COM 225 REPORTER

The unannounced closing of Lot CC for the handicapped on Euclid Avenue, in preparation for demolition to the Corlett building, has created an obstacle for disabled CSU students.

On June 18, a chain link fence had been erected around the Corlett Building and the adjacent lot, cutting off access to the Music and Communication Building.

“I couldn’t believe it. I got to school at 9:30 a.m. but by 11 a.m. I found myself cut off from my car and had to walk around,” said Robin Hill, a 21-year-old CSU student.

Hill, who suffers from osteo-arthritis added, “I use a walking cane and it’s hard to walk long distances. What if it had been pouring rain? And what about people in wheelchairs?”

A call to Parking Services revealed that no one in the department knew of the fence.
Sandra Barnard, recording manager for Parking Services, said that contractors had been reached and told of the problem, but by 4 p.m. pedestrians still had no way through.

The Corlett Building will be torn down after asbestos removal operations, which began June 22, but putting up the fence early without notification was not in the plans.

“The company was contacted and told they must re-configure the fence to allow parking at half capacity, as well as access to the walkway from Lot CC to the MU,” Barnard said.

A representative from the CSU Architect’s Office said last Tuesday that the company has been contacted directly and made aware of the situation.

The entire project is expected to be completed by Sept. 1, with additional parking for handicapped students and incoming construction workers.

As of July 6, the fencing around Lot CC remained unchanged.
