Pedestrian Master Plan
The Department of Public Works is currently engaged in developing a new Pedestrian Master Plan for the City of Rockville. Creating a pedestrian plan is one the Vision Zero action items and is recommended in Rockville 2040: Comprehensive Plan.
A pedestrian master plan provides an overview of the pedestrian network and identifies policy and infrastructure improvements to address unique issues faced by people walking and rolling. You can visit the Pedestrian Master Plan website to learn more about the project including status updated and contact information.
