The Cobb Board of Commissioners on Tuesday unanimously approved expanding the Cumberland Community Improvement District (CID) by encompassing additional acreage of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.

By a 5-0 vote, the board tripled the CID’s green space as 572 acres of the federal parkland will now lie within the district, which overall expanded from 5.6 square miles to 6.5 square miles.

A partnership with the National Park Service will enhance the CID's ability to work with the federal agency to create better access to one of the district's greatest assets: the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.

Approximately 25 miles of multi-use trails weave around the district’s office towers.

According to The Marietta Daily Journal, the CID is permitted to spend money within its boundaries, so in order to assist the federal agency with an investment in the adjacent trail system, the land must be part of the CID.

The National Parks Service will not be subject to the additional property tax the CID levies to fund its projects the news outlet reported. Read more here.
