Myrtle Beach, SC HOAs and Hotel Groups Showing Concern Over New ADA Regulations

Many of the condo associations and homeowner associations, along with hotel and motel groups are very concerned about the new ADA regulations which recently were amended to include public pool access. The New Americans with Disabilities Act could mean thousands of dollars in expensive modifications to accommodate persons with disabilities.

“It is certainly not that we have anything against people with a disability, but the changes are extremely expensive,” said Don Morton, manager of the Myrtle Beach Golf & Yacht Club homeowners association.

The changes to the American with Disabilities Act were made in the fall of 2010 and will become effective starting March 15, 2012. It is highly recommended these means of access are put in place as soon as possible on both existing water venues and new construction of them.
