Mud Creek Rezoning
The zoning meeting has been delayed yet again. But this is not a time to relax and risk wanted commercial development and destruction of historical sites in West Cobb.
Columbia Properties is asking Cobb County Rezoning in case Z-98, to rezone 23 acres in the 2700 block of Dallas Highway. The developer is asking to clear cut the land and build condo-like senior living and retail space. This case will be heard in May at the Cobb County Commission meeting.
On Jan. 26th, 2016, the Cobb County Commission approved moving ahead with an approved 2008 Parks Bond that was overwhelmingly approved by Cobb tax payers. There is to be an online method to nominate land for parks. This is a possible location.
This historic property, in June of 1864, was the last stand of General Joe Johnston before the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain (Cheatham Hill). But now, Columbia and the current owners, wish to destroy the beautiful, historic land and build what will assuredly be largely empty retail and ugly high density housing. The land owner has a right to sell his land if he chooses, but the Community CAN and Should have a say in what happens. Is this in the best interest of your community?
The County failed on it's promise to move ahead on a 2008 bond referendum for parks until this year. Now seems like the perfect time and a good place to begin acquiring green space. I urge you to join the neighbors in this area that have already voiced opposition to this development, and sign this petition to stop the said development. Save this historic ground from the bulldozer.
Make your voice heard, Cobb County. Say no to unwanted development.
