The renovations of the Lerner Theatre were completed in 2011 and as such the theater was then required by Federal Law to be fully ADA compliant, including accessible parking. That did not happen.

There are virtually no ADA compliant handicapped parking places anywhere near the Lerner Theatre. This fact means that many disabled folks and others can not get into the theater because they are unable to walk that far. I attempted to get the former Mayor - Dick Moore —  to pay attention but he refused to do anything constructive. At that time, the only thing the city was willing to do was put a non-compliant ADA parking place on Main Street across from the Lerner in front of Patrick Industries. At that time, I decided if Moore won the election, I would sue the city the next day.
