Minneapolis Advisory Committee on People with Disabilities

About MACOPD

On March 30, 1990 the City Council adopted Resolution 90R-115, reestablishing an Advisory Committee on People with Disabilities to provide advice and guidance.

The Committee’s desire is that through their input and work, residents and visitors with disabilities will enjoy a more accessible and complete experience of the City and be more engaged the opportunities afforded to all persons.

The Minneapolis Advisory Committee on People with Disabilities (MACOPD) serves as a resource to the Mayor, City Council and all City elected officials, leaders and departments to ensure proactive and holistic planning is in place and that appropriate actions are taken to prevent and address issues affecting persons with disabilities as a part of their work. The Committees provides advisory services regarding Americans with Disabilities Act mandates and ways in which the City of Minneapolis can be more accessible for all persons.
