  • CCHRC to Hold Age-in-Place Retrofit Workshop

The Cold Climate Housing Research Center will hold a Universal Design Panel from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 6.

The course will benefit contractors and landlords looking to make houses more accessible, homeowners who may have seniors or limited mobility individuals living in or visiting their house, health care professionals providing advice on accessibility, and more. The cost is $10 per household, or $5 for CCHRC members. For more information and to register, visit
