Cobb Commission Chair Lisa Cupid has said she plans to bring affordable high-density housing “next door to you." Cupid has admitted these types of developments have led to decreased property values in her home of South Cobb and that “all of Cobb needs to share this burden."
The County Commission Chair has made their plans clear. West Cobb as we know it is about to change.
We don't want West Cobb to be developed like other parts of Cobb county. In addition to decreased property values, overdevelopment and high-density housing result in more road traffic, reduced green space, overcrowded schools, and soaring crime rates.
If we don't act now, everything we’ve come to know and love about West Cobb will be gone.
The citizens of West Cobb have a valuable tool available to us to stop overdevelopment: self-government.
If West Cobb incorporates as a municipality, zoning decisions can be made by a council of our neighbors and not by a large government run mostly by commissioners that don't live in West Cobb. In fact, West Cobb residents elect only one out of four commissioners.
We believe the government that governs closest to the people governs best. It's time to vote YES for local control.

The citizens of West Cobb will have the opportunity to vote to "Preserve West Cobb" by incorporating Lost Mountain at the ballot box.
We are asking our West Cobb neighbors to vote YES for Lost Mountain so we can place local zoning decisions into the hands of our neighbors.
