Great News!  Chairman Mike Boyce is already taking steps to honor the vote for the Park Bond 2008 Referendum, as he pledged to do during his campaign for Chairman of the Cobb County Board of Commissioners.  

During the 1st BoC Work Session, Chairman Boyce and the other Commissioners discussed ways to move forward on funding $40 million Park Bond 2008.  They agreed to put Park Bond 2008 on the agenda for the 1st Board of Commissioners meeting: Tuesday, January 10, 2017 at 9:00am

The January 10 meeting is open to the public, and we will also post updates on the Cobb Parks Coalition Facebook page.

You can read more about the Work Session in the news:  AJC articles here and here, and an MDJ article here.  Also, see the CBS46 video on Chairman Boyce's first day in office, which includes his comments on making sure the $40 million Park Bond 2008 Referendum voters overwhelmingly approved in 2008 finally gets funded.

This was the original Park Bond ballot item in 2008
From the MDJ article: “During the campaign, I made a commitment that we were going to find a way to fund this 2008 parks bond. But — there are no buts. We’re going to find a way to do it,” Boyce said.
From the AJC article: The Cobb County Commission will vote Tuesday on whether to issue $24.7 million in park bonds to buy greenspace, a first step toward fulfilling a central promise of new Chairman Mike Boyce’s election campaign.
