Handicapped access to businesses needed

This month marks the one-year anniversary of my residency in St. Joseph. I am a big promoter of our little town and have nothing but good things to say about it, except one thing. I will frame it as a question and maybe someone can give me an answer.

Why, in this vibrant, welcoming community, can’t the physically handicapped folks get access to the coffee shop and the co-op on Minnesota Street, neither of which is handicapped accessible?

I have a friend who uses a scooter, and she is unable to get inside these businesses. Both places are often used for group meetings and this is quite a handicap for her. This limitation doesn’t make sense to me. Anyone have an answer?
