Community Garden – MIC’s community garden on Floyd Road provides area residents with a chance to grow their own veggies and make new friends at same time. Plot rentals begin as low as $35/year. New to gardening? Veteran gardeners share their wisdom and we can link you with experts in the field, too. For more information, contact Terri Carter.
Beautification – MIC volunteers make a difference! Click here for information about MIC’s Adopt-A-Mile project on Floyd Road and click here to read about MIC’s Adopt-A-Stream work. MIC has adopted Floyd Road and conducts quarterly roadside trash pick-ups. Similarly, we have adopted Nickajack Creek and remove trash from its banks in the winter months. MIC is also developing some new ideas for sprucing up our community. If you’d like to get involved, contact Julie Carrick.
Farmers Market – From June through August, local farmers bring the bounty of their gardens to the Mable House Complex for your shopping enjoyment. This Thursday morning market has become a tradition and social event! For more information, contact Steve Jungk.
Zoning – MIC’s Zoning Committee analyzes every application filed within the 30126 zip code and works with the applicants, county staff and the Board of Commissioners to find the best result for Mableton. With the perspective that development can positive and that redevelopment is critically needed, MIC collects community feedback, delves into the details and then speaks for our community. For more information contact Robin Meyer.
Economic Development – MIC knows that a complete community is one with a vibrant commercial district. We are working to distinguish our community, support new and existing businesses, educate decision makers about Mableton, advocate for Mableton, collaborate on beautification projects and support workforce development. For more information contact Twila Hawthorne.
Parks – Because of MIC’s advocacy for public access to county property in the River Line area, a new park will soon open to the public. MIC has also worked with county officials to bring improvements to many existing Mableton parks and trails. For more information, contact Carolyn Turner.
Holiday Projects – MIC organizes Secret Santas to shop and deliver gifts for kids at the Mableton Boys & Girls Club each holiday season. At the same time of year, MIC volunteers assist the South Cobb Arts Alliance by staffing Mable’s Tea Room, a decades-long tradition in Mableton. For more information about Secret Santa, contact Janis Stevenson. For the Tea Room, contact J.R. White.
Public Safety – Neighborhood Watch programs are a powerful tool for all neighborhoods, but especially in areas without HOAs. MIC has assisted two neighborhoods in establishing active Neighborhood Watch programs in conjunction with Cobb Police. For more information, contact Joel Cope.
Communication – MIC wants to connect Mableton! We manage the Mableton Community Facebook Group with thousands of members and lots of conversation! We also present MIC’s activities through our Facebook page and this website, and provide a free bimonthly newsletter. We want to meet you in person too!
