Wonder if the NG could tell us who is responsible for checking for ADA compliance on remodel/new businesses in the area?  There sure a lot of new businesses in the area not even attempting to be wheelchair accessible.  I've seen a dozen businesses open with steps to entry, no seating for people in wheelchairs, and no accessible bathrooms.  Many of the downtown bars are a good example, as well as most smaller town businesses. Black Dog, Jupiters downtown(food is better than the new one), Bonyard BBQ, the new apartments/offices at 4th and University, there is a new bar/restaurant in St. Joseph being remodeled which appears there will be no access, Philo tavern, Old Chicago only has a couple of tables not on raised area, so I always have to wait forever, the list could on and on.  Maybe some lawyer should charge out the wazzoo and take these people and whoever inspects them to court so they'll learn to comply.  Wouldn't be any monetary benfit to me, but the lawyer could get rich and I could go to these places without the surprise of not being able to get in.

Many of those places that you listed have not been remodeled in such a manner that requires them to make the buildings compliant with the latest ADA code. Do your research first...

Most of those places have been completely gutted and redone and have been opened since the ADA guidlines were established, which DOES mean they have to comply, thank you. Almost every one but the Black Dog have gone through a significant remodel.
