SHOUT OUT: The Bergen County Department of Human Services’ Division on Disability Services is holding the “Access for All Summit III” on Sat., March 29 at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, County Executive Kathleen A. Donovan announced yesterday.

This year’s event brings together municipal leaders, public safety officials and volunteers, as well as concerned citizens concerned about providing more access to those with disabilities, Donovan said.

The site of the summit is key: One of the main topics at last year’s event was how southern Bergen County seems to have more to offer than in the northern end.

Among the scheduled speakers who will provide updates on improvements since then include Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle; Freeholder Maura R. DeNicola; Ridgewood Mayor Paul Aronsohn; Jim Thebery, the director of the county Division on Disability Services; and Joseph Amoroso, the director of the sttatete Division on Disability Services.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to interact and explore access issues in our communities,” Donovan said.

“The Summit provides us with valuable resources and possible grant funds to enable towns to better address their residents with access and functional needs,” DeNicola added.

Refreshments and resource information will be available in the Conference Center Lobby.

The event will run from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.
