Barring wheelchair washing may violate housing laws

February 24, 2007
Question: My 15-year old son is a typical teenager. He is into sports and a lot of outdoor activities. The only difference between him and his friends is that he has to use a wheelchair. For the past year we have been washing off the chair with soap and water in the driveway. The last time we did this, the new manager told us we were not allowed to use any area of the grounds to clean the wheelchair. There is no other place for us. What can we do?
