In order to aid in the preservation of Cobb County’s history, the county has sought to mitigate the demolition of historic structures by development. In instances when a historic building has been present on property subject to new development and the building cannot be saved, the county has required developers to properly document the structure before it is demolished. This includes hiring a cultural resource consultant to produce a history of the building and its occupants, along with archival-quality photographs of the building and its setting. The reports have been submitted to the county’s historic preservation planner.
