Overview

The City of Roswell has set the wheels in motion on its first-ever Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan.

Through its Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan process, the City will evaluate its policies and practices, identify and prioritize bicycle and pedestrian investments, and develop a fiscally realistic implementation strategy. The master planning process will go through three distinct phases, each including public input and engagement:
  • A data-gathering phase to establish existing conditions
  • An assessment phase to establish bicycle and pedestrian needs
  • A recommendations phase to establish policies and infrastructure investments for the City's consideration and develop a guide for implementation.
A final Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
 


Public Outreach

Public Open Houses

The first round of Public Open Houses for this master plan were held back in May 2019.

The second round of Public Open Houses were held on September 16 and 17, 2019, to present draft recommendations based on all public feedback received, including responses to the survey, those gathered through the stakeholder committee, and those collected at the May events.

Draft Recommendations

The Draft Project Summary and Study List was presented to City Council at a Special Called Work Session on October 30, 2019. The Hub & Spoke Trail Vision and Draft Project List is not yet final, but has been revised based on input from the public and stakeholders. The priorities listed are based on a needs assessment that was derived from data analysis and public input received to date. The draft list currently shown reflects over $100 million dollars in identified improvements, so these priorities will likely change based on the availability of future funding.

Next Steps

The next step is for the project team to further refine the draft project list based on project feasibility, anticipated challenges to construct these proposed projects, and financial constraints.

Survey

The Bicycle and Pedestrian Survey was available from early May to the end of June 2019. The survey is now closed. We thank everyone who took the time to complete the survey. More than 500 people completed the survey and provided more than 900 comments.

Stakeholder Committee

We thank everyone who expressed an interest in serving on our Citizen Stakeholder Committee. We’re pleased to have established a committee of 10 citizens from all parts of the City. We look forward to working with them as they provide input and guidance as this master plan process moves forward.
