With no government pressure nor expectation, Jim Rooney and members of the Harbor Commission planned and found the resources to create two new ways for the disabled to enjoy being on the lake and the river. At the Fifth Street ramp, there is a solar powered lift for transferring from a wheelchair to a boat. There is one in downtown Chicago, but not freely available. At Pugh Park fishing pier, there is now an accessible kayak launch. Thanks for thinking of us!
