Dumais: Sun City resident worries about access to restrooms at lake

Posted

This is an open letter to the Recreation Centers of Sun City management.

Like many seniors in Sun City, we enjoy going to the west side of Viewpoint Lake. Some practice their lawn bowling skills before the next tournament. Many, like us, go to fish. Others, just to enjoy the serenity of the lake.

On our last visit Feb. 6 we were told by a new member, Mike, of the building maintenance staff that we could no longer have access to the restrooms after 3 p.m. because of alleged graffiti.

We go to the west side of the lake at least three times per week, and have for several years since purchasing our first home in Sun City. This is the first we had heard, or seen, of what he is alleging.

When we asked what are we going to do for a restroom he said walk to the other side of the lake. We are supposed to think that the seniors, who pay their property assessment to use the facilities, were not given top priority before making this decision. What about the seniors with limited physical skills, disabilities and, unfortunately, incontinence? Why wasn’t this addressed in the weekly newsletter?
