Minneapolis Advisory Committee on People with Disabilities (MACOPD)
The Minneapolis Advisory Committee on People with Disabilities (MACOPD) works to engage and make the city accessible to people with disabilities. This committee advises the mayor, City Council and all City elected officials, leaders and departments to make sure that the City plans proactively and holistically, and prevents and addresses accessibility issues as a part of their work.
As of December 2019, find all MACOPD meeting dates, agendas, bylaws, commissioners and other background information on the MACOPD webpage in lims.minneapolismn.gov.
The MACOPD meets every 3rd Wednesday of the month between 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. All meetings are open to the public but we follow strict agenda and often have a busy agenda so guests do not speak unless they arrange in advance. Find location and details on each meeting agenda on the MACOPD webpage in lims.minneapolismn.gov.
