Maroondah Disability Advisory Committee

The Maroondah Disability Advisory Committee was formed in 2010 to provide a link between Council and people with a disability.

  • provide advice to Council in the development and review of the Disability Policy and Action Plan
  • promote the positive image of people with a disability within the municipality of Maroondah.
