Dan Larson looks at the city putting a new sidewalk in front of his house on Elwood Drive West in University Place in early May. Larson wants to put in a new driveway because he has multiple sclerosis, needs a cane to get around and believes he'll be in a wheelchair in three years. The city initially said a hearing examiner would have to make an exception to allow the sidewalk, but after receiving an application from Larson approved his request administratively.
