Mayor's Commission on Persons with Disabilities


The Rocky Mount Mayor’s Commission on Persons with Disabilities serves as a formal and continuing means by which the community may be made aware of the needs and abilities of the disabled. The Commission encourages the involvement of the disabled in the daily activities of the community by promoting their gainful employment and removing architectural barriers. In addition, the Commission acts as an educational, public relations and advisory agency to both individual disabled citizens and the community at large so that the skills of all our citizens are used to the fullest extent.

Meetings are held every fourth Wednesday at 4:00pm, September - June at City Hall, Conference Room 1. Contact the Rocky Mount Human Relations department at 972-1182.
