This greenway acquisition is comprised of a conservation
easement of the floodplain portion of four properties. The combined
total acquired acreage of the protected area is approximately 25
acres and will permanently protect approximately 1,860 feet of stream
bank along Sweetwater Creek. Several wetland areas are also located
on theses properties and are permanently protected by this acquisition.
The large acreage of this easement purchase makes it a significant
addition to the corridor of protected streamside greenspace properties
that the City of Atlanta is building along Sweetwater Creek in Cobb
County. Whether it provides connectivity, improved wildlife habitat
or water quality, every greenway property has its own unique features
to contribute to the City of Atlanta Greenway Acquisition Project.
