ORS 456.506¹

The Legislative Assembly finds and declares that:

(1) People with disabilities and senior citizens over 85 years of age are the fastest growing population in Oregon. The second fastest growing population in Oregon are the members of the massive baby boom generation, who will, as they age, demand services and accommodations at an unprecedented rate.

(2) The policy of this state is to encourage the design and construction of dwellings that enable easy access by individuals with mobility impairments and that are adaptable to allow continued use by aging occupants. [2003 c.431 §1]

Note: 456.506 (Findings) to 456.514 (Rules) were enacted into law by the Legislative Assembly but were not added to or made a part of ORS chapter 456 or any series therein by legislative action. See Preface to Oregon Revised Statutes for further explanation.
