Conference worked

To the Journal editor:

The recent Universal Design conference held at the Peter White Public Library explored the concept of access for all as well as the extremely intriguing concept of aging in place.

Thoughtful design and construction can not only make our living environments possible for everyone to use, but can also make it possible for us to remain in our homes throughout our lives.

The city of Marquette is onboard with Universal Design incorporated into department master plans and many projects in our community are using Universal Design concepts to benefit everyone. A huge thank you to all who made this conference possible to promote Universal Design.
