The project team recently held three citizen stakeholder meetings to hear from community members about their ideas for the future of Cobb County Greenways and Trails. Click here to read a summary of the meetings and view the presentation.
Cobb County, along with our six cities and three Community Improvement Districts, are home to an extensive network of nearly 50 miles of greenways and trails that provide opportunities for recreation and travel, and connect people to parks, shopping, offices and schools within the county. These trails provide many benefits and serve a variety of needs for residents and visitors, including exercise and recreation, tourism, economic development, and healthier and affordable forms of transportation.
The Cobb County Department of Transportation has initiated a Greenways and Trails Master Plan process, to help determine priorities for future trails throughout the county. The plan will provide a roadmap for the county – examining what is already built, what is currently underway, and where to go from here. The plan will identify priority corridors for new greenways and trails and provide recommendations for building upon and improving the existing network to make trails more accessible to everyone.
As part of the process, we want to hear from you. The project team will be reaching out to community members across the County to learn more about your priorities for greenways in the future. There are many ways to get involved and provide input.
Over the course of the next several months, the project team will be traveling around the County gathering information and getting your opinions about future trails and greenways in cobb County:
