Minor Modifications Part I
The Cobb County Civic Coalition (CCCC) has been urging Cobb County for several years to change its process for Minor Modifications. Their primary concerns with minor modifications in Cobb include:
- Occur AFTER the public hearing and BOC Final Zoning Decision
- No Public Notification
- No Public Input
- No Public Disclosure Before or After Approved
- In Cobb Minor Modifications are whatever a Commissioner decides they are
Their introduction to Minor Modifications in Cobb as presented to the Board of Commissioners on March 25, 2014 is posted on their website. This includes an introduction to zoning case Z-128 from 2005 that ended up costing taxpayers over $1 Million. The slideshow is online with photos.
I have an in-depth timeline for the primary example (Z-128) posted online as Minor Modifications Part II.
