Disability Advisory Committee

The Southampton Town Disability Advisory Committee was established to advise the Town Board on issues that may enhance quality of life for Southampton Town residents and visitors affected by a disability, including but not limited to those with physical and developmental conditions.  The DAC will express concerns on behalf of the community, identify areas for improvement of access, and recommend possible solutions to the Town Board.  The overall goal of the committee is to facilitate access to educational and recreational resources, and services for assistance and accommodation for those affected by a disability that promote quality of life, a sense of community, and individuality.

The Handicap Access Decal:

If you know a restaurant or business that has made the effort to comply with the ADA accessible rules, give us a call. We will do a site visit and present them with this decal so everyone knows they’re accessible.
