City Seeks To Create Formal Commission For The Disabled
01/15/2008

The City of Fresno is working to establish a formal advisory commission to represent the needs and concerns of our disabled community.

Once developed, the Fresno Disability Advisory Commission (FDAC) will work to apprise the City on quality of life issues such as infrastructure enhancement, housing, communication, transportation and other issues as they arise.

The newly developed Commission will be comprised of a broad base of representatives from the disabled community including individuals who advocate for disabled services and quality of life issues. The Commission will operate under a best practices model that is inclusive and represents the full caliber of concerns for the disabled community.

Once established, FDAC will be the sole commission responsible to bring forward recommendations to those matters that can be improved under the purview of the City of Fresno.

Individuals interested in applying for a seat on the commission can receive information from the Mayor’s office by calling (559) 621-8000.
