The overcast skies and brisk wind could not put a damper on the excitement in the air for the Madeira Beach MobiMat ribbon cutting. A HUGE “Thank You” to the Forward Foundation for funding the mat to make Archibald Park accessible! It’s been a long haul to get to today. For the past 3 years, we advocated for mat placement to provide equal access to our pristine beaches to enable anyone with a mobility impairment to get out to the sand. Funding was the obstacle that the Forward Foundation overcame by offering to pay for the mats. We expect to attend many more ribbon cuttings as each location must be granted an FDEP permit before mats can be placed. Congratulations to Madeira Beach for being the first!! We are thrilled!
