There’s a lot on the agenda for Smyrna-Vinings this week, so let’s dive right into our look at the week ahead.
Smyrna City Council meets Monday, May 7 at 7:30 p.m. at City Hall. The agenda looks light and includes a public hearing for a modification of the site plan and zoning conditions for Vintage Square Subdivision and the reappointment of Downtown Development Authority members.
Council will also vote whether to approve the use of $340,086 of Community Development Block Grant Funds between the city of Smyrna and Cobb County. The complete agenda can be viewed at the city of Smyrna website.
The public is invited, and the meeting is also televised live on Charter Communications Public Access Channel 19. Replays of council meetings air the second and fourth Thursday of the month on Channel 23 at 7 p.m. See the TV23 section at www.cobbcounty.org for a complete rebroadcast schedule.
