The problem with Morris Island is access. No docks means only people with private boats can get on the island. Some city council members want to build a dock and allow bigger boats to get in. The hope is that the docks would open the way for children who wouldn’t normally have access to Morris Island.

But the Morris Island Coalition says it ain't so and that you can get to the island just fine with no dock and a flat bottom boat, and there's no need for development.
