Stop the Rezoning!

Don't let bad plans ruin Marietta or Cobb Neighborhoods!

See below for a quick view of where they want to rezone to build a monster complex in the middle of a quiet neighborhood!

What is going on?
High-density housing with poor oversight is threatening our neighborhood!

  • Steve Macauley wants to rip up 19 homes on Meadowbrook Drive, Virginia Place, SE, and throw up a mixed-use development that includes over 45,000 feet of retail/restaurant space, 176-unit apartment complex, 160-unit senior living apartments, a 5-story parking garage and 39 townhomes. What is he thinking?

Why should I care?

This directly impacts you If you travel along Powers Ferry Road to access the 120 Loop or I-75 or live in Cobb County!

  • This development and rezoning application plans to cram almost 400 units back there and they have NO plans to help mitigate traffic. This means even more of an endless traffic nightmare at the Loop and Powers Ferry Road intersection.

  • This development directly targets one of the last areas of affordable single-family housing in the area. It will literally rip a quiet residential street apart in two. Remember! A giant high-density complex in this quiet neighborhood today means your neighborhood is not safe tomorrow!

  • We voted in our elected officials into their positions so they could make our community better! A community is nothing without the people and their neighborhoods!
