Learn more about the upcoming SPLOST at the informational meeting for District 3 from 7-9 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 25 at the East Cobb Senior Center. Residents will be able to view project lists and converse with county staff about the various projects. There will be no formal presentations, so participants may drop in any time during the allotted hours.
Cobb residents can visit cobbsplost2016.org to review the complete project list for the proposed 2016 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax. The 2016 SPLOST, if approved by voters in November, will fund such projects as a new regional library, a new fire station, a new police precinct, the renovation and expansion of the Public Safety Training Center, expansion of the North Cobb Senior Center, a Windy Hill/Terrell Mill Connector and sidewalks in Mableton. Each of Cobb’s six cities would also receive a portion of the tax, based on its population, to use for improvement projects.
Additional informational meetings on the proposed 2016 SPLOST are also upcoming.
