East-West Alley Master Plan
Reimagining and Revitalizing Alleys in Downtown Historic Roswell
The City of Roswell is looking to transform two of its alleyways behind Canton Street into vibrant places where people can stroll, shop and dine. There is a movement to revitalize public alleyways in downtown districts all across the country
, and Roswell’s East and West Alleys behind Canton Street lend themselves perfectly to this exciting revitalization of public places.
However, before we begin moving forward on this project, the City wants your input. We welcome anyone who is interested in this project to attend the following public meetings:
- June 17, 2014, East-West Alley Master Plan Public Planning Sessions (Charrette), held at Roswell Historic Cottage

The Master Plan
Future Public Meetings
CANCELLED: September 10, 2014, at 7:00 p.m., City Hall, Council Chambers: Present Master Plan for Adoption at Mayor and City Council Meeting
Please note that the September 10th presentation of the Master Plan has been cancelled. Based on direction from Mayor and Council at the August 25, 2014, Mayor and City Council Work Session, staff will no longer be bringing the Master Plan to the September 10th Council Meeting for adoption. We are continuing to work on the Master Plan, and we will update this site as soon as we have additional meeting dates set up.
Once we gather public input, the City will develop a master plan for the area. The purpose of the master plan is to improve connectivity and to build upon the success of the walkable village concept of Canton Street while preserving the historic character of the area. The City will review existing conditions and any future developments planned within the area and evaluate walkability and infrastructure demands. Specific items we will address are access, mobility, aesthetics, utilities, parking, stormwater, and wayfinding signage with a key focus on urban sustainability.
