City Council considers disability access requirements for homes
EL PASO, TX (KTSM) — City Council heard details Thursday in a special meeting discussing requirements for apartments accomodating people with disabilities.
Currently, seven percent of El Paso's population has trouble getting around. The city requires three percent of units in a housing complex be available for these kinds of tenants.
After a study, UTEP researchers said the demand has stayed steady and do not believe council should raise the requirements.
Council will vote on this item in a future meeting.
