Let’s get walking Tama County!
Join us for Iowa Healthiest State 12th Annual Walk.
Together we can help Iowa become the healthiest state in the nation!
This is the only such event that we are aware of in Tama County, so all area residents are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Earlier in the year we had a very successful “Walking Audit” in Toledo. Now it’s Tama’s turn. On September 15 we have planned a Walking Audit around downtown Tama conducted by an experienced representative from Wellmark’s Healthy Hometown initiative.
The AARP (American Association of Retired Persons) describes a walking audit as:
Specifics: See attached flyer.
- Walking Audit as described in the flyer.
Ever been interested in discovering the South Tama Rec Trail and learning more about the trail and future plans? Well, on Wednesday, September 28, we will provide a golf cart tour of the South Tama Rec Trail for individuals age 50 and older who cannot comfortably walk the trail. Interested adults may join us between Noon and 3pm at either the Tama Civic Center or Toledo Heights Park for a golf cart ride on the trail.
Some of our planning material is available on our Documents page . Watch this space for more information as elements of this event are confirmed.
A rain-date of October 5th is also possible.
There will be NO regular meeting in September.
The original committees from Tama and Toledo, and others who wish to join the effort, are invited to meet and discuss organization, priorities, and next steps.
This meeting will be held in the large meeting room near the back of the Tama Civic Center to avoid potential conflicts with events at the Wieting Theatre.
Agenda specifics: To be announced at a later date.

This shouldn’t have to happen, but in the present there is no other option. This elderly individual is walking in the highway. The highway.
Tama-Toledo Healthy Hometown Committee is working very hard to change this, by making the community more walkable.
Tama and Toledo city leadership: We’ve ignored the need for a continuous sidewalk along highway 63 for decades. Please support the work of the committee to the greatest extent possible and let’s get this done.
PLEASE ASK OUR LOCAL LEADERSHIP TO ACT NOW- NOT LATER.

Welcome to the new internet home of Tama-Toledo Community Visioning! Please check out our About page to learn more about the group.
You may also find online resources at the web pages provided by Iowa’s Community Visioning organization, specifically the Tama and Toledo pages. However, we found these pages to be difficult to maintain with limited features, so most of what you find there is meant for download only, and eventually we hope to have all of that material here in a more presentable form.
Also be sure to check out our Documents
pages. Just today, 21-December-2021, we added a 44-page
Safe Routes to School report from 2009. There’s lots of valuable information in that document so be sure to check it out along with other Plans
that we are sharing.
One other resource I encourage you to visit is @Summitt Dweller · I Like to Hike and some of the CV-related hikes in the “Featured” section there, like https://hikes.summittdweller.com/hikes/highlighted/2021-11-22_4.48pm/ and https://hikes.summittdweller.com/hikes/highlighted/2021-03-13_9.45am/ .
We also welcome your feedback and participation! There’s a

page to keep tabs on upcoming opportunities to get involved. We would love to hear from you and see you at our next meeting!
