Proposed Six Flags Road Name Changes
Cobb County Community Development Agency has proposed renaming the various Six Flags roads in South Cobb. Reasons include improving navigation in the area, improving public safety response time, and promoting new investment in the corridor. This effort includes two public meetings and two public hearings in which local residents, property owners and business owners have the opportunity to provide input regarding road names in this area. Two public input sessions were held at the South Cobb Recreation Center in January in which several community members came out to voice their suggestions. Two public hearings will be held in March, one by the South Cobb Redevelopment Authority on March 17th at 9:00 am at the Mable House Arts Center in Mableton and another with the Cobb Board of Commissioners on March 25, 2014 at 7:00 pm at 100 Cherokee Street in Marietta.

Cobb 2040 Comprehensive Plan
Community Development has begun the initial stages of the 10 Year Update to the County’s Comprehensive Plan. In the interest of providing healthy and economically vibrant communities that are vital to the state’s economic prosperity, the State of Georgia requires all local jurisdictions to coordinate and conduct comprehensive planning duties through the Georgia Planning Act of 1989.
The benefits of a comprehensive plan is to work with the county residents, the business community, and non-profits to develop a growth strategy that continues to make Cobb County an attractive place to invest, conduct businesses and raise a family. The County’s comprehensive plan is a fact-base resource for elected officials, appointed officials, and the community that creates and tracks implementation of community-based policies. Additionally, the local comprehensive plan creates an environment of predictability for business and industry, investors, property owners, tax payers and the general public. The plan can help local governments recognize and then implement important economic development and revitalization initiatives. Overall, well-planned communities are better prepared to attract new growth in a highly competitive global market.
Cobb 2040 Plan Development
The Cobb 2040 Plan Development document is a framework plan that guides Cobb County in the creation of the Cobb 2040 Comprehensive Plan. The document describes the state minimum standards, local recommendations and essential procedures of the planning process. In addition, it provides information regarding the required and optional elements, the data needs for each of the elements, a Public Participation Plan, and a project organization section that defines the flow of the plan development process and the structure of the Cobb 2040 Comprehensive Plan document.
The Cobb 2040 Plan Development will be presented to the Board of Commissioners during the March 24, 2015 work session. At the conclusion of the work session, a 30 day public comment period will commence to receive feedback on the draft framework plan. The Cobb 2040 Plan Development document will be posted online for public inspection, staff will use Cobb Line to distribute information to the community, and staff will request the Commissioners to disperse information to the public through your weekly newsletters. Once the comment period ends, edits will be made and staff will request the Board of Commissioners to hold a public hearing and will request consideration on the document.
