Our vision is: An Ann Arbor whose facilities, programs, businesses and organizations are accessible to persons of all abilities, and where inclusion and full-and-equitable participation in community life are available to everyone. 

The City of Ann Arbor values all of its citizens, regardless of ability. Our mission statement reads, in part: "The City of Ann Arbor is committed to providing excellent municipal services that enhance the quality of life for all."  

The Ann Arbor Commission on Disability Issues has evolved from a commission created and convened by Mayor Robert Harris and City Council in 1969, and maintained through the years under various names. The city collaborated with and drew from its Disability Commission to create this resource page.​ ​
