Would someone with physical disabilities have difficulties living in this city?

It would be nearly impossible. - Apr 10, 2017
This would not be an easy city to live in for someone with a disability. Nearly impossible. - Feb 14, 2017
Yes. Nothing is planned for disabled folks. Getting around could be tough. - May 1, 2016
It's getting better, but there are still many sidewalks where a wheelchair would have problems and most businesses didn't accommodate. - Jul 17, 2014
Very difficult. . .while some minor efforts have been made to accommodate wheelchairs these accommodations are rather misguides (ramps too steep to be utilized, etc). Sidewalks are more often than not broken and uneven, and there is little in the way of accommodation for visual or audio disabilities. - Oct 31, 2011
LOTS, streets are all uneven and very few ramps. - Sep 24, 2011
There are about 5km of good sidewalks in all of the city, so don't come here if you are disabled. - Apr 27, 2011
Tremendous difficulties. I would not recommend that anyone with physical disabilities live here. - Jun 9, 2010
Many. Sidewalks are in poor condition in the few places where they do exist. It's not a very walking-friendly city. - Oct 12, 2009
I think I saw two wheelchairs on the street the whole time I was there. - Jan 27, 2009
