Remodeling for Accessible Homes Guide

MARC Guidebook Cover

Roeland Park partnered with MARC and other cities to develop a guide to remodeling homes for accessibility. It provides to-scale remodeling plan concepts that would be common for homes such as those located in Roeland Park. It also provides cost estimates for these efforts in order that this guide serves as an educational and informational piece for residents and builders. 

The guide serves to put the concepts of Universal Design and accessibility, which are often difficult to conceptualize, into an easily understood format. The cost estimates are to help people determine the magnitude of each component. The guidebook can be found here

Roeland Park is happy to have partnered for this guide and to have had conversations around Universal Design and increasing accessibility throughout the City and the KC area. Look for Universal Design and accessibility resources being incorporated in the City's website in the near future.
