I have a question regarding sidewalk width minimums in

Customer Question

Good evening.....I have a question regarding sidewalk width minimums in condominium complexes. I live in Florida and the sidewalks leading from the parking areas to the individual units are very narrow at 24" wide. In addition to this narrow width, each unit has a "stepping stone" the travel from the narrow sidewalk to the individual condo front porch/stoop areas. If I were disabled, I don't know how I could enter my condo unit. There are several elderly tenants who own/life here. I know of one tenant who has disabilities. Any info or advise would be appreciated.

The Fair Housing Act states that all doors designed to allow passage into and within all premises of covered dwellings must be sufficiently wide to allow passage by persons with disabilities, including persons who use wheelchairs. Here is a link Florida code. It is very complex. But generally, accessibility is key.
