Ben Krumenauer became involved with re:TH!NK in 2013 while working for the City of Oshkosh Planning Services Division. Ben transitioned into a role as Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator with East Central WI Regional Planning Commission in 2014. This new position allowed him to contribute to re:TH!NK’s, and other similarly aligned, efforts in a variety of ways. He’s has been a core member of re:TH!NK’s Health in Planning (HiP) workgroup, working to integrate the disciplines of public health and planning and help educate local decision makers about how planning can influence health outcomes. He was also part of a team that applied for planning for health grants to work on local-level projects. Ben also partnered with UWO’s University Studies Program Quest III Urban Planning class where students are learning about HiP connections.
Other initiatives Ben co-lead or was involved with include Oshkosh North Communities Pit Stop Day, the UWO Bike Hike, volunteering at Country USA for the "Walk your Boots, Drive your Bike" campaign, Cycling Without Age and various Safe Routes to School initiatives including the 25-mile end-of-the-year ride with the Omro School District. He also is involved with other community improvement efforts like his neighborhood association and the Oshkosh Food Co-Op. Ben has recently accepted a position as Administrator for the Town of Algoma and plans to continue his involvement with re:TH!NK. Thank you Ben for being an awesome re:TH!NK member!
