Ever been interested in discovering the South Tama Rec Trail and learning more about the trail and future plans? Well, on Wednesday, May 25, 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.

Walking Audit - Rescheduled Again

June 2 from 5pm - 7pm at Wieting Theatre, Toledo, IA

For our April and May “meetings” we had planned a Walking Audit   conducted by an experienced representative from Wellmark’s Healthy Hometown   initiative. Due to weather concerns that event was POSTPONED TWICE and this event is taking it’s place. The rescheduled walking audit is set for Thursday, June 2 at 5 PM. Everyone is invited to attend and walk together!

The AARP (American Association of Retired Persons) describes a walking audit as:

…a simple activity in which an individual or a team observes and evaluates the walkability of a location to document how and if pedestrians can safely travel along a street, navigate an intersection and get from point A to B, C and so on.

Specifics: We will meet outside the Wieting Theatre at 5 PM on June 2 and walk through Downtown Toledo, then we will walk to the former Iowa Juvenile Home site (future site of a new South Tama Middle School), and continue on to the intersection of Business 30 and Broadway. Wear comfortable walking shoes and dress for the weather! I believe there will be a bus available at the end to return walkers to the Wieting for a short meeting.

Attention!   We would like to have a head-count in advance of the event – deadline to RSVP is May 30th – so please click one of these links to email either Denise Fletcher or Karen Mixdorf. Let them know who, or at least how many, will be in attendance. Also consider bringing appropriate snacks and water to share.

Agenda specifics:

  • Walking Audit as described above.

Welcome!

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   and Events   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 Contact Us link (the envelope icon) at the bottom of every page. Just click that link to open an email addressed to this group. Also, as mentioned above, check out our Events   page to keep tabs on upcoming opportunities to get involved. We would love to hear from you and see you at our next meeting!

Take care.
