East-West Alley Master Plan
Reimagining and Revitalizing Alleys in Downtown Historic Roswell
Alley Master Plan Graphic-sm.jpg

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:

The Master Plan
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.
