Webcast on Comparison of Housing Access Standards: Fair Housing, Universal Design & Visitability

Please join the DBTAC - Southwest ADA Center at ILRU for a webcast on “Comparison of Housing Access Standards: Fair Housing, Universal Design & Visitability.

Barbara Chandler, Fair Housing Manager at Metropolitan Boston Housing Partnership will present the webcast on “Comparison of Housing Access Standards: Fair Housing, Universal Design & Visitability” on Wednesday, August 27, 2008 at 2:00pm Central.

This session is designed for anyone with an interest in the different concepts of housing design for persons with disabilities. Housing design options for persons with disabilities and their families have broadened from the traditional mandated code accessibility standards over the past few years. While this has created more options, it has also created much confusion as to what these concepts offer in terms of developing housing that best serves this highly diverse population. The speaker will provide a comparison of the goals, principles, standards and general levels of accessibility of the Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988, universal design and vistability. Ms. Chandler will also discuss the differences between mandated standards of accessibility and voluntary general principles.
