What's happened with the new ADA pool regulations that were supposed to go into effect this summer? We came across one RV park this summer that elected to close their pool rather than install the expensive accessability equipment required. Other parks seems to be going along either blissfully ignorant of the regulation or just planning on ignoring it. Is there a new deadline or has the ADA backed down? Just curious.

I think what this says is that they must in fact have a lift for each pool and hot tub. If they got a moveable one before March 15, 2012, they can use that. It seems that an RV park with a pool and a hot tub would be required to buy two fixed ones now at a cost of about $6,000 each or close both the pool or hot tub. There is no extra money provided for enforcement and that is left up to the states and counties, so it may be years before they get caught. I am sure a cottage industry of slimeball lawyers will be preying on these public accommodations (including hotel, motels, B&B's and all sorts of other things). This will also cause insurance rates to go way up. This is a sad day for our country.
