This is the 18th post in a series of posts this December that will chronicle the 25 things we would most like to see in Roswell. None of these are actually happening... at least in the way we'd like them to. Please enjoy and have a happy holidays!
It's not as prestigious as the Beltline but it sure would be nice to have. The Roswell Loop idea has been around since at least 2006 and was championed by the city leadership. Unfortunately, the idea was approved at precisely the wrong time... a la the Boutique Hotel. The economy has put this one on hold.
If you are unfamiliar with the concept, you can obviously take a look at the map and you can check out this article from C.I.C.L.E. that was originally published in the AJC. I loved the quote, "The fundamental decision you have to make is whether your money is going to accommodate the four rush hours a day or the other twenty hours."
This project would help give identity to Roswell and it would help foster a much safer environment for cycling and encourage people who aren't bold enough to get out on the open road to get out on two wheels and go for a ride.
