Barrier Free Design

Barrier Free Design regulations are intended to ensure that public facilities are accessible to and usable by all citizens, including elderly persons, wheelchair users and individuals with permanent or temporary conditions that reduce coordination or mobility or make walking difficult or insecure. State law also requires that new construction be designed and built in accordance with the barrier free design requirements of the state construction code. Structures that undergo an alteration must comply to a certain degree with the barrier free requirements of the state construction code.
