A requirement that the 180
Jewish Vocational Service clients
enrolled in the agency's adult day
program for the retarded use a
rear elevator to enter and leave
the JVS' Kristen Towers work-
shop has been dropped by the New
York-based development com-
pany that owns the Oak Park
office building.
SBREC Development Associ-
ates and the JVS reached a verbal
agreement Friday on the use of
the building's public facilities by
the agency's clients and em-
ployees, including the elevators
off the front lobby. The current
JVS lease, which was negotiated
last fall when SBREC puchased
the building and went into effect
Jan. 1, stipulates that JVS clients
use a specially-equipped elevator
located at the back of the building
to gain access to the sixth floor
"Our clients will be treated no
differently than other tenants in
the building, with the exception of
where we deem it necessary for
safety considerations," JVS Di-

rector Albert Ascher said refer-
ring to the new agreement.
While the New York firm has
agreed to various changes re-
quested by the JVS, there has
been no move to renegotiate the
agency's lease, according to
Christine Kurtz, who is in charge
of asset management for SBREC.
"As far as they're concerned and
as far as we're concerned, the
problems have been resolved,"
Kurtz said.
Last week, a source close to the
JVS indicated that the agency
would file civil discrimination
charges against the New York
management company if the re-
quest had been ignored. Kurtz de-
nied that SBREC was biased
against the retarded or any other
minority group.
Workshop clients and em-
ployees had been using the main
lobby elevators for the five years
the agency had been located at the
site, on Greenfield at Lincoln. The
changes were necessary, accord-
ing to SBREC, in order to control
the pedestrian traffic through the
front of the building so that a $1
million renovation of the facility
could get underway. Although
construction work is scheduled to
last 12-18 months, the conditions
set forth in the new lease were
designed as a permanent change,
Kurtz said.
As part of the lease agreement,
SBREC spent about $10,000 to
modify the elevator and entrance
at the rear of the building for use
by handicapped persons, accord-
ing to Kurtz. While most of the
JVS clients range from mildly to
profoundly retarded, many do not
require handicapped facilities to
live and work.
Other terms in the lease which
the JVS protested were require-
ments that clients use restrooms
on the sixth floor only and that
they refrain from loitering in pub-
lic areas of the building. The re-
stroom stipulation has also been
dropped, according to Ascher.
The JVS will continue to unload
buses at the building's rear
entrance "but our clients will
have no limitations on their ac-
cess to the workshop," Ascher
