Mike Boyce's Presentation and Town Hall Meetings and on County Millage

To help you understand the context for your tax bill and the planned changes in the county's 2017 millage rate, please watch this special video I made to explain the issues involved.

In addition, I will host a series of upcoming town hall meetings. These meetings will be held:

  • 7 p.m., Monday, July 17
    West Cobb Senior Center, 4915 Dallas Highway, Powder Springs
  • 7 p.m., Wednesday, July 19
    East Cobb Senior Center, 3332 Sandy Plains Road, Marietta
  • 11:30 a.m., Saturday, July 22
    Thompson Community Center (in Thompson Park, 555 Nickajack Road, Mableton)
  • 7 p.m., Monday, July, 24  
    North Cobb Senior Center, 4100 South Main St., Acworth (GPS address: 3900 South Main St, Acworth)

Changes to Work Sessions

For evening BOC meetings, we have permanently moved our Board of Commissioners Work Sessions to Mondays at 1:30 p.m. prior to the evening meeting. Agenda Work Sessions continue to be at 9:00 a.m. for both the morning and evening meetings. The change gives us a longer lead time to act on feedback on items presented at the work session.

At Monday’s work session we will be discussing updates to the county’s nepotism policy as well as the new CobbLinc Route 10x plan. The route will create faster, more direct transit service between Kennesaw State University and downtown Atlanta. The current CobbLinc Route 10 has the highest ridership in the CobbLinc system. The majority of the funding comes from a Federal grant for congestion mitigation and air quality.

We are less than 50 days from Opening Day at SunTrust Park. The commissioners and staff are rapidly finalizing all projects in our partnership with the Braves.

Traffic Management Plan for SunTrust Park

The Cobb County Police Department, in collaboration with the Cobb County Department of Transportation and other partners, has developed this traffic management plan (TMP) for events at SunTrust Park, with the following guiding principles:

  • Provide for safe, efficient vehicular and pedestrian arrival and departure;
  • Minimize traffic impacts to nearby neighborhoods, businesses and daily commuters;
  • Leverage extensive thoroughfare network which provides 14 points of access, including two interstates; and
  • Leverage the County's Advanced Transportation Management System (ATMS).
