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.

  • Walking Audit as described above.
