CANNON BEACH, Ore. (AP) - Groups in Cannon Beach are working to bring sand-friendly wheelchairs to the beach.

The Daily Astorian reports (http://bit.ly/2dzScDk ) that the Chamber of Commerce and partners Remax Coastal Advantage, Martin Hospitality and Escape Lodging hope to provide the beach-accessible wheelchairs for visitors to the city next year. Last week, the City Council approved an agreement to store the wheelchairs at City Hall.

The chamber seeks to purchase one adult chair and one youth chair that would be free for public use. The non-motorized chairs start at about $2,500 and include 4- to 5-inch-wide tires that keep the chair above sand.

Neighboring cities Seaside and Manzanita currently provide beach-accessible wheelchairs for visitors.
