Disability

The Commission on Disabilities was established to advise the City Council on all matters affecting persons with disabilities in the community; review community policies, programs, and actions which affect persons with disabilities; and help create a public awareness of the needs in areas such as housing, employment, and transportation.

Residents throughout the City are eligible to apply. Commission members are appointed for four-year terms and will consist of those with and without disabilities, represent a cross-section of the City’s disability groups, and include those with professional experience representing or supporting persons with disabilities.

Meets at 5:30 p.m. until 7 p.m. the first Monday of every other month in the City Hall 5th Floor Large Conference Room. If the first Monday is a holiday, Commission will meet on the third Monday of the month.  For further information or to leave messages for Commission members call Monique Gordon at 951-826-5427 or send a FAX to 951-826-2409.
