Accessible Communities: Accommodating Our Booming Population
Vibrant communities accommodate aging and diversity! Presenters explained why it’s critical to design visitable homes across all transects and will show visitable housing prototypes developed by UDA (for Habitat), the IDEA Center at SUNY-Buffalo, The New Urban Guild, and Hampton University. Learn about aging population distribution across transects, AARP’s recommendations, and the ease of including basic mobility support in every dwelling.
