How Is this appropriate, responsible development/land planning by Acworth?
This assemblage of 55.5 acres is now an "opportunity" for Acworth to continue to grow from Lake Allatoona to Bartow County. The Planning Commission/Zoning hearing is scheduled for September 25, 7:30 pm at Acworth City Hall.
This is the first step toward Acworth being able to continue annexation north to the Bartow County line.
Annexation/rezoning signs are posted for LAKESIDE at CEDARCREST, a proposed Commercial/Retail/Office Development. View details below.
- Residential properties in this assemblage are designated by Cobb County as R-20, Rural Residential
- Higher density, more intense use would be permissible by Acworth, not by Cobb County
- Storm water runoff – there are 7 discharge points that run through USACE land directly into Lake Allatoona
- Threat to water quality due to increased impervious areas (maximum 60% impervious) and use of pesticides/fertilizers on a tract that is upgradient from the lake
- This parcel is not included in an existing 2008 Wastewater Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) between Cobb and Paulding Counties which has limited capacity with specific parameters:
- property must front Cobb Parkway,
- be able to flow by gravity to Pumpkinvine Creek, and
- be able to flow by gravity to Pumpkinvine Creek WITHOUT PUMPING
- City of Acworth, through Mr. Bob Weatherford, Cobb County Commissioner for this area, has requested an agenda item to amend the existing Wastewater IGA to include this development
The support of YOU, your family/friends/neighbors is needed to PROTECT LAKE ALLATOONA. This project, as proposed, could have a far-reaching impact to the entire Atlanta area.
