We must look into confirming we have proper traffic studies that align with other construction being done nearby. Unlike our current mayor who wanted every traffic study conducted as a stand-alone study and not look at what impact nearby development might create.
Between Powder Springs, Cobb County, Austell, Hiram, Paulding, Mableton, and all the surrounding communities there is a lot of construction going on. The traffic studies need to include all surrounding construction, not studied with blinders on. Besides traffic patterns, we need to ensure we have sufficient law enforcement and other city personnel to support the growth.
The city has currently approved building approximately 1,500 new family units, everything from apartments to single family cluster homes. Do we really have the infrastructure to support this growth?
