Inclusive Design

Inclusive Design Policies, Codes, and Incentives

As part of the Redmond 2050 focus on equity and inclusion we are looking at ways we can update how we design and build our community to make it more inclusive - including removing policies and codes that have been used to exclude some community members or that have unintentionally caused barriers.

Our staff has been studying ways that our built environment impacts different people in different ways. Some of those resources can be found below. Please contact our team at if you have additional recommendations.  

Universal Design Principles

  • Inclusive/Equitable
