The Cobb County Board of Commissioners, which currently controls planning and zoning for West Cobb, is paving the way for overdevelopment in our community. Our Commissioner has been fighting to protect us from this, but she is outnumbered by a board that is not looking out for West Cobb's interests.
The writing is on the wall. We have seen what out-of-control development and increased high-density housing have done to the rest of Cobb County. One look at East Cobb or South Cobb will demonstrate how quickly an area can change when unchecked development is allowed.
West Cobb is next. As we've seen, overdevelopment, industrial zoning, and increased high-density housing inevitably lead to declining property values, increased road traffic, reduced green space, and overcrowded schools.
Before long, everything we’ve come to know and love about West Cobb will be transformed.
The citizens of West Cobb have a valuable tool available to us to stop overdevelopment: self-government.
By coming together and forming our own limited-government, preservation-focused city, we can assume development control and determine for ourselves how best to grow our community.
By establishing self-government through the City of Lost Mountain, West Cobb can protect against overdevelopment and ensure smart development, which always puts the needs of local residents first.
Our goal is not to halt development in West Cobb but to ensure that it is done intentionally, responsibly, and most importantly, controlled by the people it will directly impact.
We need local control before it’s too late.

We need your help.
Preserve West Cobb’s goal is to get the message out to our community about the concerning direction toward overdevelopment and how cityhood can bring development control back to West Cobb.
