Event aims to make Crosslake a better place to walk

CROSSLAKE—Organizers are asking community members to join a Walkability Workshop and Walk Audit.

The Greater Lakes Association of Realtors in conjunction with the Crosslakers is hosting the event, which is from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. June 13 at Crosslake Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall, 35960 County Road 66 Crosslake.

"A walkable community is a healthy, thriving place in which people of all ages and abilities can get where they need and want to go on a daily basis," the group reported in a news release. "The purpose of the workshop is to make Crosslake a more walkable community through healthier streets."

Participants are advised to wear comfortable clothes, and be prepared for changeable weather (umbrella, sunglasses, etc.). After the walk audit, lunch will be served and the group will discuss collective findings. People are invited to join for the entire time or just part of the day to work with the other participants to make Crosslake a more walkable community.
