La Crosse Named 'Walk Friendly' Community
What does La Crosse have in common with Atlanta, Georgia...Tallahassee, Florida...and the hometown of Indiana University?
All those cities have just been named to a national list of 'walk friendly' communities. La Crosse Mayor Tim Kabat says the award from a pedestrian support group validates the efforts the community has made to improve sidewalks and neighborhoods.
The mayor and other city staffers celebrated the Walk Friendly designation with a gathering on East Avenue, where changes have been made to the street and sidewalk to promote walking and biking.
