Dispute Over Sidewalk Ramps Pits Beacon Hill Residents Against City
It's a dispute that has pitted Beacon Hill residents against the city, with disability advocates caught in the middle. Both sides say they want to make sidewalks in the historic neighborhood more accessible to the disabled, but how exactly to do that is now the subject of a lawsuit accusing the city of acting in bad faith.
Keeta Gilmore is the chair of the Beacon Hill Civic Association, which has filed the suit against the City of Boston.
