Z-47 is Not Good for Cobb County, the Community or the Chattahoochee
The residents of Wildwood, the Powers Ferry area, the Cumberland Improvement District and Cobb County, GA come together to oppose the redevelopment of Z-47 2018, or Restaurant Row because it is not good for Cobb County, the Community or the Chattahoochee River.
The development known as Z-47 2018 or Restaurant Row lies between Powers Ferry and Windy Ridge Parkway where it adjoins the Chattahoochee National Recreation Area and will drain into the Chattahoochee via Rotten Wood Creek. Today the land houses four restaurants of which three are abandoned. The applicant is proposing to scrape the existing lots of all existing mature trees and vegetation, grade it and add a development of 471 new apartment units adding to the existing glut of apartments already unleased and planned for the area.
Efforts to address community concerns with the applicant have failed and we think it appropriate that the community unite with one voice to tell the applicant and the Cobb County Board of Commissioners that development that destroys our natural environment doesn't belong in Cobb County!!!
If you cannot attend the 9:00 a.m. Tuesday, August 21st meeting at the Cobb County Board of Commissioners meeting where a hearing will be held to determine the future of this project and our environment will be determined, we ask for you to sign our petition to show your solidarity with all concerned citizens.
