Mr. Leserman uses a scooter or manual wheelchair and can’t get around on Boulder’s inaccessible sidewalks.

Also, the City gave permission to Macerich Twenty Ninth Street, LLC, the developer of the new “29th Street” project to design and construct more inaccessible sidewalks.  The lawsuit alleges that the City of Boulder designed and constructed several new sidewalks and bus stops that fail to comply with the ADA requirements.
