Dear Mister Condo,
Mister Condo replies:
K.V., I am sorry that you have to park further away from your unit than you would have to if there were more handicapped spaces at your condominium. I am sure it can be quite the challenge when you have to park far away. The short answer is that your Board is not under any obligation to provide additional handicapped parking but it has been my experience that a well-worded request can carry great results with the right Board. My advice is for you to write a heart-felt letter to the Board explaining the difficulty you are having and how you and other unit owners would benefit from having additional handicapped parking made available. Please understand that your Board may be unable to grant the request due to parking restrictions or currently deeded spaces to other unit owners but my guess is that they will at least give your request the serious consideration it deserves. All the best!
