Disability Advisory Committee

The Disability Advisory Committee was created to assist the Town in complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and to integrate all residents into the life of the community. Specific projects have been undertaken to meet community needs, an emergency evacuation plan for residents with special needs, participation in the annual Mental Health Awareness Day, a Universal Design brochure, and handicap parking passes. Members meet monthly in Town Hall, and new members are always welcome. Call for meeting schedule 631-702-2423
