The acquisition of these two adjacent parcels builds
on the purchase of another adjacent parcel located east of Stovall
Road in Cobb County for a combined total of almost 5 acres of protected
greenspace. These recently purchased parcels also now completely
protect a wetland area adjacent to Sweetwater Creek. As the Metropolitan
Atlanta region continues to grow, the surrounding areas continue
to experience development pressure. This acquisition is an example
of how the City of Atlanta can protect greenspace and create green
buffer areas along streams before the adjacent land is developed.
Protected stream buffers along major creeks will help to minimize
any negative impacts of growth on the streams of the Atlanta region.
