New Residential Model to Open in N.J.

Community Access Unlimited (CAU) will hold a grand opening of its newest property Wednesday, Sept. 23, at 11 a.m., at 193 Terrill Road in Fanwood, N.J. The cutting-edge mixed-use property will become home to both people with developmental disabilities and people without disabilities, as well as two commercial businesses.
The property is cutting edge in that it: Extends CAU's mission of enabling people with developmental disabilities to fully integrate into the community rather than living in segregated housing; mixes barrier-free affordable housing units for people with developmental disabilities with those available to residents of all incomes; it is an energy-efficient building, featuring ENERGY STAR appliances and heating units, Anderson double-hung windows and sensory thermostats; and improves the aesthetics and property values of the immediate neighborhood, replacing an inhabitable residence and a liquor store.
