Subdeacon Joe Posted March 29 Author Share Posted March 29 40 minutes ago, Sedalia Dave said: We had to fight when our building was remodeled for them to not put baby changing tables on the wall in the bathrooms When our parish built a new church on the property we had to fight the planning commission. Because there are no pews they called it an assembly hall and demanded restrooms, drinking fountains, wheelchair access into the Altar (that would have required a ramp about 30 feet long). AND we would need to make the building shorter because the Cross on the top of the dome went about 3 feet into a migratory flyway. It took about a month and a half to convince them that historically churches didn't have pews. About as long to get them to accept that a person in a wheelchair could not serve in the Altar. And that if birds could figure out how to fly around nearby trees that were taller they could likely figure out how to fly around that small intrusion into the flyway. 3 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
