The first public input meeting will be held virtually on a video conferencing platform and a link to the meeting will be provided to the public. A Q&A will follow a brief presentation, and online activities will be available for two weeks after the meeting. The public is invited to give their feedback related to what they would like to see in the way of parks and trails in the Southwest Cherokee area.
Working directly with the public, Cherokee County Planning and Zoning conducted an Area Plan for Southwest Cherokee in early 2019. The area, which is also part of the SW Cherokee Area Plan spearheaded by the Planning Division, encompasses about 6,000 acres, with geographic boundaries of the Bartow County line on the west side, Wade Green Road on the east, the Cobb County line to the south and near Kellogg Creek Road and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers property on the north side.
One of the community's goals as identified during this process was to create parks and recreation opportunities and to connect the different parts of the area with a network of pathways and trails. County leadership has since moved forward with the community's ambition for local parks and trails by involving Cherokee Recreation and Parks to oversee the next phase of the process. The Cherokee County Board of Commissioners engaged TSW, an Atlanta-based planning, architecture and landscape architecture firm, to develop a parks and trails area master plan for Southwest Cherokee. TSW will facilitate the public input meetings that begin this fall to develop the overall plan. More public input meetings will be held over the next few months.
