Mayor and Council to Take Up Pedestrian Master Plan

This article has been updated to reflect a change to the Mayor and Council hearing date to Monday, Oct. 9.

The city is seeking community input as work on Rockville’s first Pedestrian Master Plan continues this fall.

The plan will guide the development, construction and maintenance of safe, convenient, and equitable walking and rolling facilities across the city. Walking and rolling describes mobility that does not use motor vehicles, e-scooters or bicycles. This includes walking with or without a white cane, audio-assistance device or walker; running; or using a wheelchair, knee-walker, mobility scooter or stroller.

View the draft plan and submit comments to city staff via email or through the Pedestrian Master Plan Draft Survey at The survey asks community members to identify what parts of the plan work well, what changes are needed and what’s missing. All comments will receive a response and will be shared with the city’s Planning Commission and Mayor and Council for their public hearings.

The Planning Commission is scheduled to hold a public hearing on the plan on Wednesday, Sept. 13 and vote Wednesday, Sept. 27 on recommendations to the Mayor and Council. The Mayor and Council are scheduled to hold a public hearing on Monday, Oct. 9, a discussion Monday, Oct. 23, and a vote to adopt the plan Monday, Oct. 30.

The Pedestrian Master Plan is a recommendation of the city’s Rockville 2040 Comprehensive Plan and is included as an action item in the city’s Vision Zero Action Plan to eliminate traffic and pedestrian deaths and serious injuries. Learn more about Vision Zero at
