The Providence subdivision is a 145-acre gated housing development

 located in the Chattahoochee River Line Battlefield.  There is a 6 acre parcel containing 2 Civil War Forts and significant trench line deemed worthy of preservation by an archaeology survey.  

Dec 19, 2017 The Cobb County Board of Commissioners approved Pulte's plan to build townhomes instead of condominums.  Pulte agreed to keep all the earthworks in tact, but there is concern about the lack of buffering around them.  Once the documentation is complete, it will be posted here.

This is a link to Pulte's original application "Other Business" application OB-40-2017 requesting Cobb County's development plan approval.  This plan shows the existing trench (page 3) with encroaching buildings, but the 2 forts (not shown) would be intentionally be destroyed for housing.  In October the plan was revised to show the forts with negligible buffer protection.
