Universal Design

The St. Louis County Office of Community Development strongly encourages the use of Universal Design Features In Houses as developed by the Center for Universal Design, School of Design, North Carolina State University, April 1998, to maximize the accessibility of housing developed using federal HOME assistance.  The specifications detailed in this publication are intended to make housing units easily adaptable to individuals with disabilities without compromising style or affordability.  OCD construction staff are available to assist prospective developers in obtaining and implementing universal design procedures.
