Visitability Makes Continued Progress

| 0 TrackBacks

Eleanor Smith of Concrete Change has added a link to a new resource for promoting Visitability. It is the article Visitability: The Way Of The Future In Home Building by Roger C Claar and James S Boan. The two men are the mayor and the attorney of Bollingbrook, Illinos respectively.

As Visitability and home modifications involving Universal Design continue to define the new American home, so too will it come to shape the new American standard of resort and vacation lodging comfort.

At the federal level the Inclusive Home Design Act (HR 2353) introduced by Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) has been referred to the Subcommittee on Benefits by the House Committee on Veterans Affairs.
