What Does Access Really Mean?

12:30 p.m. | Thursday, August 9, 2018

Providing access to projects for individuals with disabilities involves far more than just ADA compliance, but it doesn’t mean that projects have to sacrifice innovation, aesthetics or their budgets. Designing for inclusion is essential for supporting diverse and multigenerational urban residents. Come learn about the best practices, from universal design principles to new innovations, for making communities accessible to people of all abilities. Co-presented by The Kelsey.
