SUBJECT:
Title
CONSIDER APPROVAL OF AMENDMENT TO SWIMMING FACILITIES LICENSE AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE CITY OF CARSON AND ABILITYFIRST (CITY COUNCIL)

Body
I. SUMMARY

For many years, staff members from the Joseph B. Jr. and Mary Anne O'Neal Stroke Center have taken stroke survivors to AbilityFirst in Long Beach for water exercise classes. AbilityFirst offers a therapeutic pool with a wheelchair ramp into the water. Nothing like it has been found in Carson.
