On September 22, 2016, Isakson living announced it ended its litigation against the Cobb County Board of Commissioners to appeal the Board’s 2015 denial of CCRC zoning, and Isakson Living ended their contract with Mrs. Wylene Tritt for the beautiful 54-acre Tritt Property located next to East Cobb Park.

Dear Friends:  Please let us be respectful of both Isakson and Mrs. Tritt and show grace in our response as we receive this news.  We thank each one of you for sticking with this for so long, being part of a process that was at times frustrating and so very time consuming.  Your commitment never wavered and we are so grateful you stuck together as a community to see it through.   We will post updates on our Facebook page and the Concerned Citizens of East Cobb website. God Bless you and thank you so very much for all you did to make this a reality.  You are a dedicated group of citizens and we are so proud to be part of this community.

3 Ways You Can Help Make Tritt Park a Reality

Next Task for East Cobbers:  Please attend the Tuesday, September 27, 2016 at 7pm Board of Commissioners Budget approval meeting to push for the Board to finally fund the $40 million Park Bond as voters approved. The Tritt Property was selected as an ideal park for purchase on both the Park Bond 2006 and Park Bond 2008, which has yet to be funded before the earmarked funds are moved into the Braves stadium.

The meeting is at 100 Cherokee Street, 2nd floor. Wear green if you have it, but the Cobb Parks Coalition will have green flyers to hold at the meeting.

You can also email the Board with this link or contact your Commissioner (770) 528-3000 to encourage them to fully fund the $40 million Park Bond as voters approved.
