                                October 13, 2018 Jennifer Smith  Mandalay Bay Aquarium, Las Vegas Mobility and physical access.  Tried to visit the aquarium at Mandalay Bay, my family was told they had to park over half a mile away. I am disabled and have a state issued placard for handicapped parking. Mandalay Bay decided to shut down the parking lot in front of the aquarium to lease it out for an event. That means they also shut down access to the required handicapped parking that serves the aquarium building.

                                I am not one to file a complaint unless I’ve done everything in my ability to try to resolve it. So I called the hotel, spoke with the box office and multiple people in security (I spent over an hour total on the phone). I finally spoke to the security manager “Lisa” (they would not give me her last name). She was nothing but rude and argumentative, kept talking over me and wouldn’t listen. She insisted that I would have to use ADA parking farther away in the convention center parking garage. That defeats the whole purpose of the required ADA accessible parking out front - she totally didn’t get that not only do I have to park, but I have to be able to walk to where I need to go (I use forearm crutches or a walker). Then she hung up on me! I tried to call back and they told me I wouldn’t be able to speak to anyone higher until Monday, said the Security Director’s name is Blake Paris and to follow up with him.

                                Unfortunately, none of this helps me for this weekend, when we are here visiting from out of town. By taking away the legally required ADA parking spaces, Mandalay Bay is discriminating against me because I don’t have the same opportunity to access the structure in the way other patrons do. You can’t remove required ADA access just because you want to have a special event. Not without at least making suitable equal access elsewhere. You can’t just tell a disabled person they’ll just have to park farther away and then hang up on them.

                                Nov 22, 2018 Yvette Chevalier Clark County Building and Inspection  I spoke with at least ten different persons from Clark County about my above ground pool for my handicapped service dogs. I use my dogs to help for stability and sleep apnea. They also retrieve objects if I drop them in water and also help me swim. I have 8 dogs in training and have an above ground pool at 6750 Boulder Highway, LV NV 89122. The county is asking me to take down the dog pool because I cant find a commercial entity to permit the pool. It is an above ground 48 inch pool purchased on Amazon and a deck built for the dogs only. As a disabled person, I feel my dogs should be able to swim. The area is not near pedestrian right of way and is fenced. This is for my DOGS ONLY. i CALLED OVER 40 POOL CONTRACTORS AND ALL SAY THERE IS NO SUCH PERMIT FOR AN ABOVE GROUND POOL. I ASKED THE COUNTY FOR REFERRALS OF PERSONS WHO COULD HELP ME OBTAIN A PERMIT AND THEY REFUSE TO
                                PROVIDE THE RESOURCES. THEY ARE ASKING ME TO OBTAIN A PERMIT FOR AN ITEM NO ONE ELSE PERMITS AND KEEPING MY DOGS FROM PROVIDING ME A SERVICE I NEED. I HAVE /EMPHEYSEMA/COPD AND DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE.

                                Nov 29, 2018 Alejandra Gutierrez Rancho High School  Today 11/28/2018. My son went to school to Rancho High School. He is wheel chair bound. The school had a fire drill and the teacher did not know what to do with him so she decided to tell my son to take the elevator. An employee seen him going throws the elevator and advise him not to take the elevator. He replied to her if she could help him go down the stairs. She said to him Nevermind take the elevator. This is a school who does not have ada for children in wheelchairs. No ramp was made for this kind of emergency. No one assisted my son. I feel this is discrimination throws him. Especially since he asked for help. If you could please help an anyway. This is very upsetting. My son was afraid. What if there was a real fire and they left him behind?.
