Many homes in the state of New Hampshire are not accessible to those who have wheelchairs due to door frames not being wide enough. Although there are regulations forcing a small fraction of housing to be wheelchair accessible, it's not nearly as common as it should be. This petition asks that all future residential buildings in the state of New Hampshire are built with door frames wide enough for wheelchair accessibility (minimum of 32 inches wide). Residential buildings include apartment buildings, houses, and condominiums. Currently, the law only requires five percent of the units to be accessible to those with mobility impairments. Our goal is to begin seeing a change within the next five years. Widening the reach of this requirement would grant easier access for those who have mobility issues and would prevent them from having to do expensive reconstruction on homes they are moving to. 

In signing this petition, you agree that the state of New Hampshire should mandate that all future residential building projects be required to be built with door frames that are a minimum of 32 inches. 

Wheelchair accessibility should be required for the whole of a building, not just 5 percent!
