Petition to Hold a Referendum Vote on Cityhood in East Cobb

The residents of East Cobb deserve the RIGHT TO VOTE in a REFERENDUM to decide whether we should become the City of East Cobb.

Sign the petition to show your local legislators that you support the democratic process and self-determination.


Updates to the Bill & New Dates in the Process

Referendum Date: The East Cobb Cityhood Committee supports holding a referendum vote in the May primary. If the majority of residents in East Cobb vote yes to Cityhood, it opens the door for a council to be elected in November, thereby avoiding the need for a special election.

In addition to being more cost-effective, this timing is ideal for getting an elected council in place for 2023 and positioned to make critical decisions.

Council Structure: After considering feedback from the community, legislators, and the Governmental Affairs Committee members, we requested a change to adopt a more conventional council structure, like the City of Milton.

The entire city will elect a mayor and six elected council members, two from three districts.


The Map: Are you in?

Everybody loves maps. It's the #1 question we receive. We posted an updated PDF of the map on the website last November. See the map.

On November 19, 2021, we posted an update to the map with a revision to include the neighborhoods at the end of Columns Drive.
