The 419 corridor of Roanoke County has undergone recent changes to make the area a more vibrant, walkable destination for residents and businesses. It was exciting to learn more about these initiatives and upcoming projects during my walk around Tanglewood alongside Principal Planner, Alex Jones.
Along the way I learned more about the implementation of the 419 Town Center plan at private and public infrastructure projects. Assistant Director of Planning, Megan Cronise, discussed recent and upcoming transportation projects to make the corridor more accessible to pedestrians and bicyclists. Then, Alex and I made our way back down the corridor where Economic Development Specialist, Karli Foster, discussed new businesses and economic development growth.
