The Mayor’s Committee for People with Disabilities (MCPD) was established in Watertown in 2003. The Committee was created for the purpose of developing a favorable public climate that will foster acceptance and meaningful integration of people with physical and mental disabilities within the community. Members include people with disabilities, parents and those who have an interest in the challenges faced by people with disabilities.
