Dear editor, My mother-in-law visited us recently. She is 87 years old and needs a wheelchair to go any distance. I told her what a great downtown Georgetown has and wanted her to experience it. We started down Main Street but the sidewalks were so bad she was afraid she was going to fall out of the chair. We had two blocks to go and the intersections at the end of both blocks were not wheelchair-friendly. There was no smooth ramp-like transition from sidewalk to road and there was at least an inch bump at each intersection. Our downtown is not wheelchairfriendly. There are so many shops we would have visited but could not because of steps or rough sidewalks. Something should be done about the wheelchair accessibility in our downtown area. Kay Wright, Georgetown
