Universal Design Brochure (PDF)

Universal Design involves designing products and spaces so that they can be used by the widest range of people possible. Universal Design evolved from Accessible Design, a design process that addresses the needs of people with disabilities. Universal Design goes further by recognizing that there is a wide spectrum of human abilities. Everyone, even the most able-bodied person, passes through childhood, periods of temporary illness, injury and old age. By designing for this human diversity, we can create things that will be easier for all people to use.

Initial Review / Survey

The Building Department will conduct an initial survey within 21 days to determine whether the problem is an actual violation of the California Building Code accessibility standards.
