Rockville Pedestrian Advocacy Committee
The May 2023 RPAC meeting will be an in-person Walking/Rolling meeting that tours the Rockville Town Center neighborhood and highlights pedestrian infrastructure and opportunities for improvement.
The walking/rolling meeting will start at the intersection of Monroe Street and E. Montgomery Avenue and will begin at 6:30 p.m. The pedestrian route is approximately 1.5 miles and follows sidewalks, crosswalks, and pedestrian bridges in the Town Center.
Minutes and recordings for prior virtual meetings are available online.
