Join the Disability Commission

Do you have an interest in helping the City of Maryland Heights ensure an inclusive community for all? The Disability Commission currently has two vacancies that need to be filled by qualified members.

Formed in December 2022, the Disability Commission serves as an advisory team to City Council. Its purpose is to make recommendations for programmatic and legislative matters related to the quality of life, overall well-being, and inclusivity of residents and visitors living with disabilities. 

Boards and commissions are an integral part of municipal government, offering an outlet for community members to get directly involved in the planning and operation of City activities. Appointments to these advisory bodies are made by the Mayor with the consent of the City Council. 

Members must be living with a disability, the caregiver of someone living with a disability, and/or a representative of a business whose primary mission is the care and services of people living with disabilities. Each member of the Disability Commission serves a term length of three years. 

Applications are available by visiting, emailing, or visiting the Government Center (11911 Dorsett Rd.).
