- Monday, October 24 at 9:00 AM: Listen live to the new Park Bond 2008 property list announcement during the Cobb County Board of Commissioner's work session. It was reported that the list will be presented the day before the Tuesday Board of Commissioners meeting. Note if for some reason the Tritt property is not on the list of properties submitted to the Board of Commissioners for consideration, we need to press for it to be considered for purchase as it was the impetus for the entire park bond process that began in 2006. The list being provided to the BoC is only a recommendation of properties. It is within the full authority of the Commissioners to consider any property for purchase, if they chose to do so, whether it is on the list or not.
- Tuesday, October 25 at 7:00 PM: Attend or watch the Board of Commissioners meeting. The meeting is located at 100 Cherokee Street, 2nd floor. NOTE: District 3 Commissioner JoAnn Birrell had planned to present a resolution to fund some of the 2008 Park Bond on October 25, but she has changed the date to Tuesday, November 8 meeting at 9:00 AM. The new Park Bond property list is scheduled to be presented on Monday October 24 at a Board of Commissioner Work Session. Check our Facebook page for updates.
- Wednesday, October 26 at 7:00 PM: District 2 Commissioner Bob Ott will be the speaker at the East Cobb Civic Association meeting at 4400 Lower Roswell Road in the Lower Roswell Government Center across from Mt. Bethel Church. We encourage everyone to attend this meeting to express your support for the purchase of the Tritt property and full funding of the $40 million Park Bond. It is the responsibility of the Board of Commissioners to fund what the people voted for by an overwhelming majority over 8 years ago. The Tritt property was the impetus for the Cobb County park bond program, and it was recommended for purchase by both the 2006 Park Bond and the 2008 Park Bond Committees.
