Your Input is Needed: Walking and Biking Trails in Rome

Announcement image

The public workshop meeting for the Rome-Floyd County MPO Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan Update will be held on Monday, August 4 from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm in the Berry/Shorter Rome of the Forum in downtown Rome. The workshop will include a brief presentation as well as small group discussions to identify specific walking and biking improvements desired in the community. Want a bike lane along a particular road, a trail with connections to specific destinations, or an intersection improvement to make it safer to walk? This is the time to share your thoughts.

Additionally, the project team will be hosting open office hours on Tuesday, August 5 from 8:00 am to 10:00 am and 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm, also in the Berry/Shorter Room of the Forum. If you are not able to attend the public workshop or would like to talk with the project team in more detail about your ideas, please stop by. All are welcome.

The purpose of the workshops and open office hours is to identify specific improvements related to walking and biking infrastructure in Rome-Floyd County as well as prioritize the goals and implementation strategies for this plan. The outcome of the workshop and office hours will be a draft plan that will identify priority projects for funding, develop policy related to walking and biking, and update the goals related to walking and biking in Rome-Floyd County.
