PLEASE SAVE PROVIDENCE'S HISTORIC SITE 

THREATENED BY MORE HOUSING!


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.  This site adjacent to the club house is currently threatened by Pulte Homes development.  The River Line Historic Area recommends the entire 6 acre site remain in its natural state as a historic nature preserve in perpetuity and nominated to the National Register of Historic Places.


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.


Please attend the 9 am December 19, 2017 Cobb County Board of Commissioners Zoning hearing to support preservation of these time-capsule remains of our American History.  The hearing is held on the 2nd floor of the Cobb County Government Building at 100 Cherokee St., Marietta, GA 30090 on Marietta Square.  Wear green for green space and a Preservation for Providence badge.
