Following the public review and comment period for the Dobbins ARB JLUS, all public comments received were catalogued and addressed in the JLUS documents as appropriate to produce the Final JLUS Report and Background Report. The Dobbins ARB JLUS Report and Background Report were approved by the JLUS Policy Committee in January 2015. The reports were presented to the Cobb County Board of Commissioners and formally adopted by the County on February 24, 2015. The cities of Marietta and Smyrna will subsequently consider adoption of the Dobbins JLUS at future City Council meetings. Anyone wishing to view the final JLUS Report or Background Report may download from the Online Library under Resources.
