La Crosse has now earned an honor that only four other communities in Wisconsin share.
The city has been named an ‘age-friendly’ community, and is launching a study to develop more activities involving people in the 50-and-older range.
That would include Mayor Tim Kabat, who says it’s a ‘special day’ when you’re old enough to get a mailing from AARP.
Representatives of AARP joined Kabat at City Hall on Monday, to announce the program.
A study committee will have its first meeting next week.
Noreen Holmes, a former aging unit director in La Crosse County, says the planning phase in the ‘Thriving Livable La Crosse’ project is starting now.
It includes a 3-year action plan to get older people more involved in the community.
