Zoning

– The Mableton Improvement Coalition gets involved in zoning cases and the county’s comprehensive land use plan so that we can have an impact on the growth and redevelopment of our community. We work with our District Commissioner, Planning Commissioner, county staff, property owners and developers to help them see our vision for Mableton. We reach out to neighbors and homeowners associations around properties that are being re-zoned in order to understand their important issues. Information about each zoning application is included in the MIC newsletters and pending cases are more fully explained using the case links below.

Make Your Voice Heard!

  • In The Zone Meetings – Commissioner Monique Sheffield holds an online community meeting on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 7pm. Email Rwanda McIntosh for the meeting link.
  • Send Your Comments to County Officials – Use this easy link to send your opinion on a zoning application to the Planning Commission, the Board of Commissioners and county staff.
  • Attend Hearings – In person at 100 Cherokee Street in Marietta at 9am on the hearing date, or watch the live stream or recording on the Cobb County YouTube channel.

The Mableton Improvement Coalition strives to be a source of information to residents who are concerned about the changing face of a community that is drawing significant residential development, increasing commercial interests, and a changing landscape. We encourage all residents, regardless of their opinions on any particular zoning application, to get involved in the zoning process.

Here are some facts:

  • MIC is a civic organization operated solely by volunteers who do not get paid and expend significant time and energy helping to improve the redevelopment of Mableton. There is no other organization doing our work in Mableton. Check out the scope of our work here.
  • MIC board members must be residents of  the City of Mableton and virtually all our Board members live near areas which have been impacted by a zoning case or cases at one point.
  • MIC DOES NOT approve zoning applications. The Cobb County Board of Commissioners (BOC) is the only authorized body that approves zoning applications.
  • The MIC Board recommends outright approval, approval with conditions, or denial of zoning applications based on information from the MIC Zoning Committee. These recommendations are based on numerous factors, including development plan details, community input or feedback, and project impact on the area. MIC uses the public participation process provided by Cobb County to all citizens to present its position on each application.
  • MIC’s recommendations on zoning applications are made without consideration of the applicant’s past or future status as a sponsor of MIC or MIC’s events and programs. Any current sponsor with a zoning application is placed on hiatus and their funds returned until after the zoning process has been completed.
  • MIC documents and publishes pending zoning cases throughout the entire zoning process. These cases are readily available for viewing on this website. We also publish upcoming zoning cases in our monthly newsletter, which is free to anyone who signs up for it here.
  • MIC uses our social media sites to publicize virtual community meetings that are scheduled by our district commissioner or applicants in zoning cases. Everyone is welcome to participate.
  • MIC Zoning Committee members attend Commissioner Sheffield’s conducts monthly virtual “In The Zone” meetings at which any resident can voice their concerns. This virtual meeting is held on the last Wednesday of each month at 7 pm. Email Rwanda McIntosh for the link.

MIC Board members and volunteers are people who live here in the Mableton community. We donate our time and often personal resources to help make Mableton a great place to live and work. The area is attracting increasing development interest and more residents are demanding better services, schools, restaurants, etc. Some landowners are using this opportunity to sell their property to meet these demands. Reasonable people often have differing opinions on zoning applications. This is not surprising or troublesome. We will be most effective when we can talk calmly about our different perspectives and engage for the good of our community. Greater community involvement and engagement will help shape the best future for Mableton.

MIC’s Zoning Committee meets virtually twice monthly and communicates frequently by email. We especially need expertise in landscape architecture, traffic issues and land use planning. Email Robin Meyer and Becca Ford if you are interested in getting involved, or if you have any questions about MIC’s Zoning Committee. If you’d like information about Code Enforcement, click here.
