Throughout the planning process, there are many opportunities to provide feedback and contribute to the Rome-Cartersville Development Corridor. Locals are encouraged to share their comments and opinions with the project team.

At the Public Information Open House (PIOH) that occurred on August 24, 2017, a total of 374 people attended. Of the 124 respondents who formally commented, 52 were in support of the project, 28 were opposed, 10 were uncommitted, 19 expressed conditional support, and 13 did not indicate support or opposition. 

Among respondents answering the separate question about alternatives, 98 preferred Alternative 2B while 24 preferred Alternative 3B. 

The comments, including additional statements by entities and local businesses, are part of the official public involvement record kept for the project. Some of the feedback will help designers improve Alternative 2B during the next steps of the project. 

Over the next several months, the conceptual design and concept report for the alternative 2B, the "Preferred Alternative" or roadway design plan, will be completed, followed by preliminary plans and the environmental process. Future meetings for the public will be scheduled and announced as our project team reaches important milestones to share progress with you. 

We will keep you informed with regular updates on this website.
