Advisory Committee on Accessibility

Mission Statement

The City recognizes that communities excel when all citizens are able to fully participate in all aspects of community life.  The Advisory Committee on Accessibility shall assist and advise the Mayor, the City Council and City departments on ways to increase opportunities for people with disabilities and meet the needs of people with disabilities by encouraging full and equal participation in all aspects of life.  This includes the identification and removal of architectural, procedural, programmatic, attitudinal and communication barriers, and strong advocacy for policies, programs and services that meet the needs of people with disabilities.

How To Get Involved 

The Mayor's Advisory Committee on Accessibility generally meets every third Tuesday of the month from 4:00 to 6:00pm in Room 12 of City Hall, unless otherwise specified. There is a public forum at the  beginning of each meeting where any member of the public may speak and bring forward a concern or complaint. The Committee is comprised of City officials and advocates from the disability community to help directly advise the City on improving removing barriers and making policy and program change to advance the accessibility of Burlington for all residents, stakeholders, and visitors. New members are appointed on an ad hoc basis by the Mayor when the term of a serving member expires. Please express interest to Chair Ralph Montefusco and the Mayor's Office if you would like to get more involved and explore service. The term length is three years with some flexibility. Members commit to attending the monthly meetings and voluntary follow-up between meetings on ongoing initiatives and efforts. If you require any accommodations to fully participate in the meetings or share feedback, please contact CEDO with the contact information below.
