The proposed Cobb International Village to be built beside I-575 at Bells Ferry Road and near Chalker Elementary across North Booth Road is a multi-use development that will:

*Host sporting events, outdoor concerts, festivals, fitness events and other high-usage events;

*Provide an ongoing transportation service to the airport, Braves baseball games, and the Falcons’ stadium; and

*Include a proposed hotel, fast food businesses, a 55+ senior housing development (in addition to the one being built on Wooten Lake Rd. and the existing one on Bells Ferry and Chastain Rd.), parking decks, and other businesses.


We, the residents of the community around the proposed Cobb International Village, oppose it because:

 *Excessive traffic on the two-lane Bells Ferry Road and North Booth Road is unsafe for the community and the children attending Chalker Elementary and Palmer Middle School. Traffic congestion on North Booth and the two-lane choke point of Bells Ferry Road (where it goes from two lanes to the south to four lanes from the north) is already high, and no widening projects are planned. 

*The potential for increased noise levels will be significant, affecting all the residents in the area.
*It will be about 6 miles from Swift Cantrell Park in Kennesaw that provides many of the same park facilities.

*No town hall meetings have been called for by our District Commissioner to get the communities input in regards to this project considering the high intensity impact it will have on our area.

*A hotel and parking decks within a park-like facility and near elementary and middle schools are unsafe for the children in our community.

*There have been no impact, feasibility studies done for this area by “Cobb County” as it relates to this project’s rezoning request, or conclusions posted as public record on their website, that we are aware of.

The undersigned oppose this development:
