Individuals With Disabilities Advisory Committee


The Fort Lee Mayor and Council's Advisory Committee for Individuals with Disabilities was established in 1993. It is comprised of 17 members including a Council Liaison, Borough Department Heads, residents with disabilities, and other interested residents of Fort Lee. 


The goal of the Fort Lee Mayor and Council's Advisory Committee for Individuals with Disabilities is to encourage the ability of individuals with disabilities to fully participate  in all aspects of community life. 


The Committee generally meets on the first Wednesday of every month (excluding holidays) at the Jack Alter Community Center located at 1355 Inwood Terrace at 1:00 p.m.  Members of the public are always welcome to attend the meetings and express any concerns they may have or seek information or advice.
