(Marietta, Ga. – August 15, 2006) Cobb County transportation officials will hold a second round of public meetings on the county?s Comprehensive Transportation Plan.
The study addresses mobility, safety and air quality challenges over the next 25 years for Cobb and its six partner cities. The study was launched in Jan. 2006 and will conclude in Oct. 2007. In a first round of meetings in April, widespread interest was shown in various approaches to improving mobility and the environment, including more mass transit, better connectivity, land use/transportation integration, more green space and improved bicycle and pedestrian networks.
At the second round of public meetings, transportation officials will update the public on what has been accomplished to date and ask for additional input. Citizens are encouraged to attend, as planners seek ideas from as many citizens as possible.
