+ Interest Survey

  • The Carroll County Department of Planning has been working on gathering information and data towards the County‚Äôs first Bicycle-Pedestrian Master Plan. To date we have conducted background research, and collected data on collisions, and existing, proposed and future trails, paths and bicycle-pedestrian infrastructure; created maps and conducted analysis; consulted with bicycle-pedestrian experts and reached out to relevant agencies and community groups.

    Our first survey was so successful we have decided to create another survey for you! We were so impressed with the number of respondents and the data that was gathered from the first interest survey; we are hoping to receive even more responses and comments.
