Handicap accessibility is an issue in the fast pace are of Atlanta. The built environment is not specifically designed for those who struggle with a disability. Every aspect of the built environment  should be accessible to different types of people, those who are not the majority. Some examples of accessibility includes access for those in wheelchairs. Some places only has stairs which inhibits people in wheelchairs use or access to that certain area. Those in wheelchairs are the most accommodated group with a disability. Those who have other disabilities to other senses have a harder time surviving on their own let alone in a major city.. The article, “Accessibility”, offers a solution to this problem which is called the, “Universal Design”. This offers a solution to the problem. This implies that items and the design of the built environment could be used for all types of people. This could help people with disabilities to lead somewhat normal lives on their own.
