The first of three public meetings will be held Monday night as Cobb County’s Community Development Planning Division will seek input in creating a master plan for Vinings.
The Vinings Vision Plan will look to address a variety of uses including land use, transportation, and community character and improvement.
This will include land use scenarios to protect the quality residential environment, urban design to assist with issues relating to the public realm, and preservation/interpretation to assist in increasing awareness about the area’s unique sense-of-place.
The ultimate goal of the process will be to create a strategic vision on how the area would grow in the future.
“We want to put together this program to present to the Board of Commissioners to make it easier for developers to know what will and what won’t get approved in the Vinings area,’’ said Vinings Homeowners Association President Bill Voegeli.
The 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. meeting will take place at , 3101 Paces Mill Road.
Elsewhere Monday, the Cobb County School District is set to introduce Dr. Michael Hinojosa in a 4:30 p.m. news conference Monday at .
Last week, the Cobb School board announced the 54-year-old Hinojosa, the superintendent of the Dallas Independent School District, was the sole finalist for the Cobb superintendent position.
Hinojosa will also hold a public meet-and-greet session in the school's media center at 3:45 p.m. You can ask him yourself why he wanted to leave Dallas, or whether he prefers a balanced or traditional calendar, or who his favorite baseball player is (he’s supposedly a big baseball guy), or even how to pronounce his last name (Board of Education members had some adventures with it Thursday night).
Check back as Patch will provide continuing coverage of both these events.
