Sidewalks (New & Repairs)

Request a Repair

Sidewalk damage can be reported online through SeeClickFix, via phone 770-528-1600, or by emailing cobbdot@cobbcounty.org.

Request Sidewalk Installation

Currently, Cobb County requires all developers to install sidewalks in new-build developments. Typically, the cost of new sidewalks is absorbed, by the homeowner, in the cost of the new home. But not every neighborhood in Cobb County, due to location or age, have sidewalks or sidewalk access. In these cases, a property owner can request that a Sidewalk District be created (see Article III. Sidewalks to view applicable sections of the Official Code of Cobb County).

To begin this process, submit a request to the Cobb County DOT at cobbdot@cobbcounty.org

Streetlight (New & Repairs)

Can I Get Streetlights in My Neighborhood?

Currently, Cobb County requires all developers to install streetlights in new-build developments. But not every neighborhood in Cobb County, due to location or age, has streetlighting. In these cases, a property owner can request that a Streetlight District be created (see Article II. Street Lighting to view applicable sections of the Official Code of Cobb County).

To begin this process, submit a request to the Cobb County DOT at cobbdot@cobbcounty.org.

What Is the Process for Establishing a Streetlight District?

  • Any property owner may propose the creation of a Streetlight District by submitting a request to the Cobb DOT (see Article II. Street Lighting).
  • If the request meets county requirements, Cobb DOT staff will prepare a proposal package that includes a petition, a plat outlining the proposed district, a project cost estimate, and a cost per property owner being served by the proposed district.
  • The petitioner will be required to distribute this information among neighboring lot owners of the proposed district.
  • If at least 75 percent of lot owners approve its creation, and there is no request for a public hearing about the proposed Streetlight District, the Board of Commissioners can take action to approve creation of the district.
  • Each property owner in the newly created Streetlight District will be assessed a share of the cost, divided among all lots in the District, which will be assessed on the water bill for that property.
