WHO: Ron Morander, CEO of Morgan’s Wonderland Inclusion Foundation, non-profit created this year to better coordinate strategic planning for unique Morgan’s Wonderland theme park and other cutting-edge ventures to help those with special needs.
WHAT: Remarks to Bexar County Commissioners Court in support of accessibility improvements to Bexar County Courthouse. Those with special needs currently must overcome multiple obstacles to conduct business at the courthouse.
WHEN: 10 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2020.
WHERE: Bexar County Courthouse, 100 Dolorosa, 2nd Floor.
WHY: To support proposed improvements including a drop-off zone for individuals with physical and/or cognitive disabilities on the south side of the courthouse, a pickup-zone on the east side of the courthouse, improved signage to direct citizens with disabilities, etc.
ETC.: Gordon Hartman, who spearheaded creation of Morgan’s Wonderland and other initiatives to help the special-needs community, has been collaborating with Bexar County officials on improving courthouse accessibility. A similar City of San Antonio effort – “City Hall for All” – is nearing completion. Accessibility improvements to both city and county seats of government will further strengthen San Antonio’s reputation as “Inclusion City, USA,” which originated in 2015 as part of the Morgan’s Wonderland 5th birthday celebration.
Non-profit Morgan’s Wonderland, which is completely wheelchair-accessible, features more than 25 elements and attractions including rides, playgrounds and gardens. The park made the difficult decision to close for the remainder of 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. For more information, visit www.MorgansWonderland.com.
