The Wausau River District website has added a new page that lists apartments for rent and homes for sale within walking distance of the River District.
Elizabeth Brodek, Executive Director of the Wausau River District, says more and more people are living life without a car, so being within walking distance is a big deal to them.
She said, "We have a list of all of the amenities in walking and biking distance from the River District. Our listed walk score (from walkscore.com) of 93 out of 100 (makes) us a walker's paradise. So you can most of your daily errands done without a car."
Brodek says this continues with the city's push of trying to attract more young professionals to the area.
"We hear a lot of people moving to the area that want to live and work downtown, but there really isn't a way for them to find specific downtown offerings and that stuff right now," said Brodek. "So, this was a good one-stop-shop to allow people an easier way to find places to live in downtown Wausau."
Brodek says they're always looking for more listings to add to the website as well. She says if you have property near the River District you're looking to sell she would love to hear from you. You can contact the River District by clicking the "contact us" button on the website.
Brodek says all of the work to find the listings within walking distance of the River District was done in-house. For those interested in the website it is www.wausauriverdistrict.org/live-here-1/
