GEORGIA DOME SUBMITS PROPOSAL FOR DISABLED
Published March 1, 1995
The Georgia Dome has submitted a proposal to the U.S. Justice Dept. in response to new handicap access requirements under the '91 Americans with Disabilities Act and "to complaints that handicapped seating in the Dome is inadequate." If it is accepted, "about 320 prime seats" held by longtime Falcons season ticket-holders "could be lost to disabled football fans." Currently, designated seats for the disabled are in "the last row of certain areas of the lower level and in various locations in the club level." Falcons Dir of Ticket Ops Jack Ragsdale: "We've told them [season ticket-holders] we will move them to the most comparable seats that are available. We've had a couple of calls with people not too happy about it" (Susan Laccetti, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 3/1).
