- The City of Roswell’s pedestrian initiatives and programs stem from its award-winning Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan, developed in 2019. The plan’s development featured extensive public engagement to ensure that pedestrian-focused projects and investments are community-driven.
- In 2020, the City’s leadership adopted a resolution supporting walking and pedestrian safety, aligning the City’s goals with principles of the International Charter for Walking and demonstrating leadership’s commitment to improving walkability.
- The City has a prioritization program for closing sidewalk gaps, developed in 2016 and updated again in 2021. The program fills short to medium sized gaps in the existing sidewalk network and dedicates funds annually to complete the pedestrian network.
- The City reviewed and updated its Unified Development Code (UDC) in 2020 to revise and update widths for critical pedestrian infrastructure such as sidewalks and shared use paths.
- The City boasts the Big Creek Greenway, the Roswell Riverwalk, and miles of new multiuse trails along their roadways and within their parks. In 2022, the City is working toward constructing a new multiuse pedestrian bridge across the Chattahoochee River to connect with the City of Sandy Springs.
