Why isn't there already a growing/changing plan in place? Where have yous been the last 15 years? Tho' the economy tanked, other areas kept growing, planning, changing with the times.
This area can't handle existing traffic now!!
Traffic blocks the northbound Cobb Parkway traffic.
Density is great. Apartments are not great.
CID gets go ahead in plan's next step Officials OK consultant for Cumberland
The Cobb Board of Commissioners gave the CID the green light Tuesday to move forward with hiring a consultant to design such a plan.
The Cumberland Community Improvement District is moving ahead with a master plan that will outline what kind of potential zoning and infrastructure changes need to be made to support future redevelopment in its core area.
The consultant, who will be chosen through a request for qualifications process, will be paid for by the CID, although the cost and timeline remain unknown at this point, Leithead said.
This is a giant mess!
"The three hottest areas in District 2 are where the three plans are," Ott said. "The reason I think that they're so successful is it tells the development community exactly what the community is interested in having there, and it gives them a guideline as to how to work with the community; because one of the big unknowns for a developer is 'We have this great idea, well, what's the community reaction going to be?'"
Smyrna should be dissolved and taken over by UNincorporated Cobb. That would the only hope.
The CID planted a few trees in the median. The median should be torn out add a new left turn lane. Synchronize the lights there would be helpful. It wouldn't hurt, either, is Smyrna Police would get to that intersection at rush hour, Nike Air Max 95 Online Shop to help commuters,. like they do around Abernathy in Sandy Springs.
1,100 apartments are expected to have a positive impact on the area? What timeframe is the positive impact seen? During construction since that requires jobs? And then it's all downhill after construction is finished?
empty. The rent on the complexes that have been built in the past few years are so over priced that only the rich (over paid) people can afford them. That way, you would never need to leave the bridge. Oh, a Whole Foods Market would be a Air Max 110 All Black
But to actually solve the issue bring the area UP to quality standards, the left turning traffic should be forced up one more block and make that section of Spring ONE WAY eastbound only. A one way loop.
"We have a vision for enhanced density, but we absolutely don't know the details, and we haven't studied zoning categories required," Leithead said.
A study is needed to tell them how to go about such development, CID Chairman Tad Leithead said.
There are 3 right exit lanes and most are trying to get into 2 left turn lanes to Spring Road, Smyrna.
The growth is North Fulton, 400 the I 85 corridor.
"Or you sit down ahead of time with some of the property owners and business owners and say, 'Where do we want to be as we move forward with continuing to improve the area or grow the area or stuff like that,' because if you think about it, it's a pretty significant change that's getting ready to happen with the 1,100 apartments," he said.
So far Ott has completed master plans for the Johnson Ferry Corridor, the Powers Ferry Corridor and Vinings. They have each taken more than a year to complete, but have been worth the effort, Ott said.
This MUST be fixed if the density is going to increase. Air Max 72
We don't need any more apartment or office buildings around the Cumberland Mall area. There are too many now and a lot of them are Air Max Original Pink
I am looking for answers to why the exit ramp from 285 that dead ends on Cobb parkway has been totally ignored!!
Smyrna is holding Cobb County back. It's a disgrace to such a prime location. Look what gets the mayor excited, the ground breaking of a Krispy Creme, Del Taco Auto Zone (and on a highly traveled, visable location).
For some time, developers like CID board member Barry Teague have been eyeing the parking lot sprawl that surrounds areas like Cumberland Mall and the 50 acre Akers Mill Square. Teague has said ideally the mall's parking lot would be developed into housing, with parking moved into decks as was done at Perimeter Mall.
plus also. And don't leave out the state of the art restrooms which no bridge should be without. Hey, use some SPLOST money to build a quaint little school. Man, what a signature bridge that would be! would never need to leave the bridge and deal with the exits around there! Now we know what a destination bridge is I will go to the grocery store, bank, home, etc. when I get to my destination the bridge.
Cobb has lacked visionaries. This is why Perimeter Center is sought after. Guess you guys saw the mixed use announcement for Abernathy/400 corner. Highrise, office,condos,hotel. And look at Avalon Town Brookhaven.
Around this place apartments sprawl just as much as the tract home McMansions on fifth acres, so how do they create density?
