Sundance Documentary "Crip Camp" Stirs Summit County Council

Members of the Summit County Council say that a documentary at this year’s Sundance Festival got them thinking about equity and access for those with disabilities.    

During the Council Comments segment at their meeting Wednesday, they said the popular documentary “Crip Camp’ was moving, and got them thinking about how many buildings in the county  still are not compliant with the American Disabilities Act.

Council Member Kim Carson said  she’d rather start with education, before some kind of regulation.      

“And how can we better serve the citizens of Summit County, and our guests that come and visit.  The day after seeing “Crip Camp”, I had the opportunity to talk with the director and I told him how much of an impact, and that even in the 24 hours, less than 24 hours since we’d seen the movie, we were already having conversations about things that we could be doing as a county to better serve our residents with disabilities.   And he said, “Well, you need to start with the building that the Sundance headquarters is in, cause they were having a hard time getting in there.   And we have a lot of older buildings, and those are really difficult to try to upgrade.”

She said Council hopes to work on their transit system.       

“With our transit stops.   And Tom is already putting together information on, what it would take to make sure each stop is not only accessible, but it’s accessible all year long.    It’s tough to keep the streets cleared after a snowstorm.   So I think this’ll be a pretty hefty endeavor, but I think it’s definitely worth looking at.”
