Universal Design makes your home a space that enables you to thrive as your living situation changes and makes life easier for visitors to your home. It's about making your home a comfortable and safe environment where everyone is welcome, and everyone can flourish.

Universal Design can help you enjoy your home today, and it will help you to stay in your home as you age. Common features include:
    •  No step entries and doorways
    •  Wide hallways
    •  Floors, showers and bathtubs with non-slip surfaces
    •  Lever-style door handles and faucets

The Board of Supervisors are encouraging Universal Design as part of the 50+ Action Plan.
