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 SHARE.
PLEASE ASK OUR LOCAL LEADERSHIP TO ACT NOW- NOT LATER.

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.
