In January of 2019, the City of Verona was awarded as a Wisconsin Active Together Community. The City of Verona was one of fourteen communities in Wisconsin to receive this recognition. This award supports the City's commitment to people being active by walking, running, biking, and playing. Visit the City's community profile online to see why we stood out in the application process.
In November of 2019, the City of Verona was awarded a Bronze Level Bicycle Friendly Community and is valid until 2023. The Bronze award recognizes the City's commitment to improving conditions for all people who bike. The City continues to add and improve bicycle facilities, the Police Department continues to hold their Bike Safety Event, and Sugar Creek Elementary School, at that time, taught a bicycle education program to promote a strong bicycle community. The City was given a report card to help assist in implementing changes to move to the new level of recognition, which can be enlarged by clicking on the below report card.
