Cobb County Property Management Department officials said the renovation includes extensive upgrades of interior and exterior areas. Highlights of the project include substantial plumbing repairs to correct issues with the sewer line, improvements of the public restrooms, and installation of new flooring, tile, partitions and other fixtures.

Improvements included restoration of the site’s retention pond, parking lot light fixtures and landscaping.
