Island Beach Access says thanks for accessibility project help

Editor,

Island Beach Access would like to thank the people of Whidbey Island for making the Clinton Beach Universal Accessibility Project such a great success. The generous support of the Port of South Whidbey, local non-profit groups, and private individuals over a two-year period enabled us to create the first public beach on Whidbey that can be accessed and used by everyone. We hope that this idea will spread throughout our Salish Sea.

You have probably seen the bright blue AccessMats at the Clinton Beach. They are now rolled up and stored for winter, but we will reinstall them next May for the 2018 summer season. This is our pilot project. We will be evaluating other public Whidbey beaches farther up the island for their universal accessibility potential. Please join us in this campaign to make our community more welcoming and inclusive.
