New Statement by Board of Commissioners: During the December 8 and December 17 Board of Commissioner meetings, Cobb Parks Coalition supporters spoke about how the $40 million Park Bond 2008 referendum passed with overwhelming voter support (over 190,000 Cobb citizens voted for the 2008 Park Bond) but has not yet been funded by the Board. Then, at the December 17, 2015 Board of Commissioners meeting, Commission Chair Lee read a statement directing the County manager to look into Park Bond 2008 funding options and the status of the Park Bond 2008 properties selected for purchase. See minute 33:25-35:00 for Commissioner Lee's comments on Park Bond 2008.

Time is of the essence: Below is 1 of the many Park Bond properties listed in 2009 for purchase, but this property on Pinkney Drive was sold and developed before Park Bond 2008 funds were issued to buy any land.
