Save our View Canton
Save our View Canton is a concerned group of citizens advocating for infrastructure in downtown that does not infringe on the beautiful views and skylines of downtown Canton. Our immediate objective, and the basis for this online petition, is to halt an active county plan for a massive parking garage positioned directly behind the historic marble courthouse building. As presently proposed, this structure would ruin iconic views of the courthouse and negatively alter the ambience of the heart of downtown. It would infringe upon the tranquility of the adjacent Riverview Cemetery, and severely hinder the operation of the cemetery, especially during the construction phase. It would also place the Arts Center (the former First United Methodist Church) building into peril.
This plan was publicly introduced at a very late phase, and is being fast tracked to approval and funding. We know there is need for parking, but we want the right form to be proposed and created. We don't want to lose our small town charm, a pillar of the downtown revitalization that has taken place.

By signing this petition, you join us in signaling your desire for the Cherokee County Commission to
- dismiss this plan, AND
- develop better alternatives for the additional parking that is needed in downtown, working in cooperation with citizen and business stakeholders, and the City of Canton
