JUST RETURNED FROM TWO WEEKS..UNIT 190 - 29 STEPTS + 14 MORE TO GO TO THE BATHROOM OR BED. I GET NO POSITIVE RESPONSES TO ELEVATORS, ESPECELLY FROM THE YOUNG, ABLE, AND THOSE WHO DON'T WANT TO PAY ANY INCREASES IN THEIR ANNUAL FEES. I GET IT! BUT SO OFTER OUR GOVERNMENT DOESN'T LOOK PAST THE PRESENT AND FUTURE NEEDS ARE NOT PLANNED. WE ARE DOING THE SAME. FOR 34 YEARS I HAVE BEEN SEEKING FILTERED WATER FOR THE UNITS. IT NEVER CAME AND I DON'T EXPECT IT TO EVER COME. HOWEVER IT SEEMS THAT EVERY OTHER SITE THAT I VISIT OR OWN (LIGHTHOUSE) HAS FILTERED WATER. SEVERAL SITES ARE NOW INSTALLING ELEVATORS AND FOR MORE REASONS THAN "OLD PEOPLE." MANY PROVISIONS WERE MADE AFTER THE HURRICANE TO ACCOMADATE THE HABDICAPED BUT SOMEHOW CASA WAS SPARRED ELEVATORS. NOT SURE WHY. THE DISABILITY ACT WILL CATCH CASA YBEL IN THE FUTURE AND WE WON'T BE PREPARED. ALL I AM INTERESTED IS IS A FACT FINDING FEASIBILITY STUDY TO DETERMINE THE BEST POSSIBLE ANSWER. I AM NOT SUGGESTING THAT WE DO IT "NOW" BUT TO BE PREPARRED FOR THE FUTURE. PLEASE DON'T THINK THE ONLY REASON FOR ELEVATORS IS FOR OLD PEOPLE! YOU ARE CORRECT, WHEN YOU GET OLD YOU PROBABLY WON'T ENJOY TO ACTIVITIES ON THE ISLAND THAT YOU DO NOW. THANKS FOR LISTENING.Vnnrsa
Ihave not been on this site in quite awhilebut could not resist! I reread all this laughed some cried some and decide I would weigh in. First I am 80 years old and by the grace of God active and able to use my unit at casa.
I first looked at the cost quoted and became quite perplexed 1479x99=146, 421x5=732,105 dollars over 5 years! How is income over 8million? Next if the elevators only? cost 80000 they must be going to install 100 elevators!!
If this were pursued Casa FGH would need a minimum of 4 and possibly as many as 7. Regardless of what was told you there is no way an elevator could be installed for 80, 000dollars. The elevator box (the part you ride in) requires many other parts plus a housing around the shaft, a device to push/pull it up and down, a way to connect it to the buildings, all the other equipment including the electric power equipment. In addition as noted ongoing inspection maintenance and repair.
80, 000 I think that is apipe dreame or maybe one of those funny cigarettes dream!! Lol
