Accessible Mats Arrive on Simmons Island

Lynn Marie takes her son Tyler Hastings for a stroll on one of two newly installed mobility mats on Simmons Island beach Tuesday afternoon.

Tyler’s family reached out to City Hall last year after seeing beach mats used in Racine. Unanimous support by the city’s Public Works Committee and City Council followed, setting the stage for Tuesday’s unveiling. Tyler can’t wait to board a family jet ski for a Lake Michigan cruise.
