Accessibility and Visitability in New Urbanist Dwellings


With an aging population and society's increased desire to "age in place," there is growing demand for accessible housing. New urbanists value diversity and community. Providing access in new development for a wider range of people will increase the market of potential buyers and increase diversity within these communities. Accessibility is fairly easy to achieve even within the parameters of traditional design. This session will examine how to provide accessible/visitable dwellings within an urban environment. The participant discussion will include increased awareness of home access within CNU.
