Who We Are, Adopted November 2018
In response to the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), we were established in 2000 to assist with compliance in North Attleborough. We are a team of residents who have volunteered to take on this responsibility through appointment by the Board of Selectmen. Members are either persons with disabilities or closely tied to individuals with disabilities. Meetings are held on the second Thursday of every month at noon in the Lower Conference Room of Town Hall.
Persons needing more information on enabling residents with disabilities or on the Commission's initiatives are welcome to join us.
We are always looking for new members committed to the work we do. If membership on the Commission interests you, please call Town Hall at 508-699-0100 or send email via our website above.
