Will Candlewood Shores Expect You? Think Again!

Kevin Opinski and Austin Opinski asked the Candlewood Shores Board to make and to provide a reasonable parking accommodation to individuals with disabilities.

On Jan. 14,2013 Kevin Opinski and Austin Opinski asked the Candlewood Shores Board in Brookfield, CT to make and to provide a reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities for parking on roads, parking at the beach and in front of the house’s. Kevin has asked the board to please be open to the people with differences and as well the elderly people that live among us here in the area. The board said there was no need for them to comply with the federal law’s under the ADA act that’s in place to help those that may need a little more help than others. This law that was made to ensure what normal people can do on their own; the same would be for those with less abilities. So that said, this could just benefit the people in this Candlewood Shores Tax District. However, even when ask to make parking spots at the beach handicap accessible, they respond that it is not their duty to do so or anything till they change the roads or parking lot’s and parking ban’s on the street’s. The meeting  could be called everything but helpful to the overall work that should be done in this District  and it should be shamed by how they treat people from this great district. It shows a lack of being inconsiderate of others short coming.

However I do remember the day growing up in this community that was so friendly and forgiving. This was the place I went to school and come back to see people here, have lost their morals and the great gift to see all people in the Shores as one of the greatest. Candlewood Shores will always have a place in my life. I truthfully feel if we change how we look at thing’s, then the things we look at will change as well.

Andrew why are you such a jackass. Your dislike for the right overshadows any sense you might have (and I'm being generous in suggesting that you have any).

Carol Dores is a member of the Tea Party? She's like most Candlewood Shores residents, no?

Kevin, You can request that from the town. They have to do it, and with a paved surface. You won't have to cross Candlewood Road anymore from Cadigan.

Andrew, I am sorry to inform you that this topic has nothing to do with any political agenda except giving people their less fortunate the same abilities. Is anyone else has during any time of participating in any event or service or goods. However, I do believe personally that all political ideologies have great things to contrast against each other, but in this case, it is about just common courtesy to other human beings as a whole.
