The Johnson Ferry Rd/Shallowford Road (JOSH) Small Area Plan Final Draft is now available for 30-day public review, published on June 3, 2019. View the JOSH Small Area Plan final draft.

As part of the Community Work Program from the Cobb County “2040 Comprehensive Plan”, the Board of Commissioners requested the Cobb County Community Development Agency, Planning Division, to undertake a small area planning study focused on the intersection of Johnson Ferry Road at Shallowford Road and surrounding areas. Hence, this study and the planning process is referred to by the acronym JOSH. Located in northeast Cobb County, the JOSH study area is mostly an affluent and prideful community of single-family residential subdivisions with associated neighborhood commercial uses and institutional services, such as schools and churches. The great quality-of-life and excellent schools attracts families to the area. In addition, established family ties, the climate, and Cobb’s excellent senior services, all contribute to empty nesters choosing to remain and/or move into the JOSH area and the County. As growth continues in the JOSH community, this document will establish a collaborative community vision that reflects the ideas and desires of the area residents and property owners. This plan will help to keep stability, provide community expectations and improve the overall quality-of-life for the community.
