Beach Access for ALL in Virginia Beach

This petition had 129 supporters

It's getting warmer outside which means summer is approaching and beach weather is near. What a great way to spend time together with family and friends then to enjoy the beach. The only problem is my son is in a wheelchair and we can't access the beach very easily.  All I want is for my son who is wheelchair bound to be able to sit on the sandy beach with us and enjoy the ocean. Seems like a simple leisurely activity, right? Well, currently Virginia beach does not have wheelchair access across the sands to get to the water. There are ramps from the boardwalk to the sands below but nothing further. I'm creating this petition in hopes that the city of Virginia Beach will place a MobiMat or something equivalent to it from the boardwalk ramps across the sands to the water. This will ensure that everyone in a wheelchair, including my son, can have beach access and enjoy the ocean with their family and friends.  Thank you for signing this petition and making VaBeach accessible to All.
