The Planning Division assists with the creation of and administers Design Guidelines for specific areas; these guidelines are included in the county's development standards that provide specific criteria for site planning and architectural detailing. Design guidelines assist county staff and other professionals such as architects, engineers, planners and developers, as well as community members, in making more informed design decisions for either private developments or public facility investments.
UPDATE: Mableton Parkway and Veterans Memorial Highway
Mableton Parkway and Veterans Memorial Highway are key corridors in the Mableton community. Both are critically important to all of southern Cobb County, as each was developed as an automobile-centric, commercial thoroughfare. Over time, both have seen a decline in their respective commercial markets. Additionally, more residential development – both single family and multi-family – has moved into the area. Cobb County seeks to revitalize both corridors through alterations to the current land use pattern and through the creation of design guidelines. View the UPDATED Design Guideline Draft Document
