Commission on Disabilities

The Commission on Disabilities works to increase opportunities and remove barriers for people with disabilities by facilitating full and equal participation in all aspects of life within the City of Revere. We assure compliance with Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act. With this in mind, we will help influence public policy by advising and working with all departments within the city on issues impacting persons with disabilities and their families, educating and informing all residents on disability issues and increasing opportunities for persons with disabilities to reach their maximum potential in independence, human development, productivity, and self-sufficiency.

When at all possible please send applications or requests regarding HP Parking Spots or HP Sign Removals electronically. As always you can mail you applications and paperwork to:                          Revere City Hall                                                                                                      Attn: Revere Commission on Disabilities                                                                                                                        281 Broadway                                                                                                                                         Revere, MA 02151
