The Disabilities Advisory Board was created in 1995 and is comprised of nine members. The board addresses issues affecting people with disabilities, including ADA compliance, transportation, housing, access to city government and services for people with disabilities, and makes recommendations to the City Council relative to the adoption of programs, policies, or ordinances of benefit to the constituency.
