Cobb County is now drafting the 2040 Comprehensive Plan to update the 2030 Comprehensive Plan. The 2030 Plan has parkland purchase goals, and specifically mentions the Tritt property.
The 2040 Comprehensive Plan is taking public comments, so please email Dana Johnson and Commissioner Bob Ott to make sure these protections for the Tritt property remain in effect.
Info on the Tritt Property from the 2030 Comprehensive Plan: "The East Cobb portion of SR 120 is similar to the Vinings area in that the remaining land available for residential development is scarce. In order to complete the nodal concept of development for the East Cobb, the county should continue to market and encourage low to medium density residential development on subject tracts. In East Cobb these tracts are generally located in Land Lots 985, 986, 906, 965, and 966 of the 16th District and Land Lots 93, 765, and 766 of the 1st District. Special emphasis on protecting sensitive habitat along Sope Creek is important as well as addressing the limitations presented by new development along Providence."
The Tritt property is located in Land Lots 965 and 966, and the Sewell Mill Creek merges with Sope Creek. No commercial development should be allowed.
Also from the 2030 Comprehensive Plan: "With East Cobb fully urbanized, much of the existing hardwood forest has been removed or is under severe stress from construction damage during the development process."
The Tritt property has 54-acres of hardwoods. The Tritt property has had forest conservation status for many years.
The 2040 Comprehensive Plan meetings request input from citizens. Please email Dana Johnson and Commissioner Bob Ott to make sure these protections for the Tritt property remain in effect.
Next 2040 Plan meeting is on Tuesday, June 14, Time: 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM
