Visitability Program

Visitability refers to standards which make homes more accessible for both guests and occupants. This voluntary program was initiated by the City to encourage accessible design and construction of single dwelling, duplex, and triplex units. The City Council adopted the resolution (PDF) on April 7, 2014.

Priority Plan Review

As an incentive, Development Services offers first priority to single dwelling, duplex, and triplex plans which meet all the visitability standards.

  1. Complete the checklist (PDF) and submit with your plans.
  2. If your plans meet all the criteria on the checklist, they will be moved to the front of review queue.
  3. Upon final inspection, a visitability certificate will be awarded.

For questions about the program, please contact Development Services at (406) 552-6630 or by email.
