Petition to Mayor Leonard C. Desiderio, John J. Divney, Frank P. Edwardi, Jack C. Gibson, Cheryl Kehner, Mary Tighe

Beach Access in SIC should be offered to ALL

Sea Isle City, NJ offers no beach access for the elderly or physically challenged. The blocks they claim to be handicapp beach block entrances are on these blocks:  32, 40, JFK, 44, 63 and 85. However, it seems they do not truly understand the difficulties many face getting onto the beach in Sea Isle City, NJ. Furthermore, what about the residents who live in the south end and not near 63rd or 85th street? Why can't the city of Sea Isle make 55th st and more near it a handicap beach entrance block? The beach access ramps are literally hills & they are very steep and extremely hard to climb. Additionally, there are no blue handicap mats once you get over the mountain of a hill.  Blue handicap mats on the beach would help those who struggle with walking to get down to the beach and near the ocean. To make matters worse these steep ramps are covered with sand and this makes it even more difficult to navigate. More disgraceful, is there are no public restrooms near the beach between 44th and 85th Street. Thus, even if you manage to get your elderly or physically challenged love one onto the beach you have to reverse this process each time they have to go to the bathroom. My elderly Father who is a Navy WW2 Vet deserves better.  He and others with similar physical challenges should not be denied a relaxing day on the beach with family and friends. Nor should they be denied access to a nearby public bathroom while enjoying their time on the beach. I am asking you to like the FB link for the petition, sign this petition, forward it to all your contacts on all your social media accts and to also email the Mayor of Sea Isle City, NJ and SIC Council Members if you agree.  Just copy the text, paste it in the body of your email to the mayor and council and tell them you agree.   His email address is mayorlen@seaislecitynj.us. Here is the email address for the council members:  jdivney@seaislecitynj.us, fedwardijr@seaislecitynj.us, wkehner@seaislecitynj.us and Mtighe@seaislecitynj.us.  Thank you in advance for your time and help. I and many others really do appreciate it.  #WW2NavyVet #ElderlyDeserveOurHelp #HandicappBeachAccess #DoTheRightThingMayorLenny
