Vinings Vision Plan
In March, the Cobb County Board of Commissioners directed the Community Development Planning Division to create a master plan for Vinings.
The Vinings Vision Plan looks to address a variety of uses including land use, transportation and community character and improvement. The goal of the process will be to provide a plan with recommendations and implementation items that the county and community can support.
The first meeting was held in May, and Tuesday’s event will focus on the following:
Natural environment including tree canopy and flooding issues; infrastructure including sidewalks, crosswalks and bicycle lanes; community facilities including parks and community center; and preservation of current land uses including transition zones and density issues.
