Visitability

Visitability is an inclusive design approach that integrates some accessibility features required under Universal Design principles:

  • One no-step entry
  • Doors with 32 inches of clear passageway
  • At least one accessible half-bathroom on the main floor

Visitability standards are less extensive than Universal Design, but can still enable current and future residents to age-in-place and adjust to temporary or permanent mobility issues, and accommodate visitors with disabilities.

The Sonoma County Board of Supervisors on July 24, 2018, passed a Gold Resolution urging all homeowners, builders, and architects to include at least basic visitability standards in all new housing construction.
