A virtual community meeting will take place August 12 to discuss the proposed Redevelopment Overlay District for the controversial Sprayberry Crossing shopping center, which has been the source of neighborhood complaints in its surrounding area for years.

The meeting is in preparation for the September Planning Commission on September 1, and Board of Commissioners zoning hearing, on September 15, where the cases will be taken up.

Cobb County District 3 Commissioner JoAnn Birrell made the following announcement about the virtual meeting in her weekly email newsletter:

Redevelopment Overlay District (ROD) #1 for Sprayberry Crossing is scheduled to be heard by the Planning Commission on September 1st and the Board of Commissioners is scheduled to hear the case on September 15th. Both meetings will be held at 9 a.m. at the BOC offices at 100 Cherokee St., Bldg. A, 2nd floor meeting room, Marietta 30090. Prior to the hearing, there will be a virtual community meeting on August 12 from 6:30-8 pm where the zoning process only will be discussed. Because this is a community meeting, opinions about the proposed rezoning will not be discussed. Commissioner Birrell and Planning Commissioner Judy Williams along with staff will attend.

Questions must be submitted prior to the meeting; the chat function will not be available.

Sprayberry Crossing, located at at 2692 Sandy Plains Road, has been a source of neighborhood complaints for years due to its dilapidated state.

It is the topic of a large Facebook group and social media campaign, and recently a community Zoom meeting was held so that the redevelopment proposed by Atlantic Residential could be unveiled to the neighbors of the property.
