In a 2010 study, the City of Boston found that the number of wheelchair accessible units in the city would accommodate only 1/5 of the 50,000 residents who need them.

Join the BSA Access Committee and local disability advocates, policy makers, and designers for a panel discussion about the potential—and limitations—that the trend toward compact living present for residents of all ages and abilities.
