KunstlerCast #22: Handicap Access

(Listen Here)

James Howard Kunstler explores the consequences of handicap access regulations and how these codes have unintentionally promoted suburban sprawl throughout much of America. In many instances, developers feel it’s easier and cheaper to just build one-story buildings rather than multi-story handicap accessible buildings. These codes can also discourage the retrofitting of second and third story retail space in old “Main Street” buildings as well. So while handicap codes may make it easier for some people to use our built environment, they can also indirectly make it more difficult for those do not own a car.

  1. You should tell Kunstler about your theory of how multiculturalism is actually the greatest force leading to suburban sprawl. The effects of handicap access regulations are trivial in comparison.
