Public Participation in Zoning
The Mableton Improvement Coalition participates in the public comment process for zoning applications with the goal of presenting the community’s viewpoint. We need to hear from you! Email us at email@example.com, become a part of our Facebook group, or attend the Community Zoning meetings. Act as soon as you see a zoning sign! Early conversations are the most productive.
To view Zoning and Variance Applications, go to this Cobb County Clerk’s website https://www.cobbcounty.org/board/county-clerk/agenda-and-minutes and “download the packet” for the next Zoning Hearing listed under Current and Upcoming Events.
