To Whom It May Concern:

I am currently a student at UTSA living at Prado Student Living on UTSA Boulevard. I live on the sixth floor of an apartment building with no elevator. As you may gather this creates a fair amount of issues. Carrying heavy objects up the 144 stairs it takes to get to my apartment is difficult, and when I hurt my ankle playing kickball several weeks ago I had no elevator to help me get to my apartment so I was forced to use crutches to get up the stairwell in the building. This also limits the people who are disabled and need wheel chairs to get around. I can never have a disabled person over to my home and my grandma couldn’t even come visit due to the amount of stairs. The lack of an elevator isn’t the only issue, the Prado management and construction company keep giving inaccurate time projections about when the elevator will be finished. I believe that they are not being held accountable for their actions and they have gotten away with this for long enough. It’s time to shed some light on this.
