Make incline accessible

I loved the Jan. 22 article on the new Rueter-Hess incline. What a wonderful addition to Parker and Douglas County! However, I was dismayed to see there were no handrails on the steps. Handrails would make it handicap accessible. As a stroke survivor, part of my physical therapy repertoire is to climb stairs. How wonderful if I could do that on the incline, outdoors in the fresh air, with a “real special” view as a reward. I urge the Rueter-Hess Recreation Authority to add handrails and make the incline more accessible for folks like me. And once modified, I challenge myself and other stroke survivors to climb all 132 steps to the top!
