Since January 2012, MA has provided program management services supporting Cobb County’s 2011 and 2016 SPLOST-funded improvement projects for Cobb County PARKS. MA’s program management
team works as an extension of the County’s staff to successfully deliver a wide range of park improvements and improvements to other facilities operated and maintained by Cobb County PARKS staff.

The program includes 200+ projects in 75+ Cobb County parks funded by a projected sales tax revenue $145+ million dollars. We have helped the county deliver both programed projects and managed the funds to implement emergency repairs such as the West Cobb Aquatic Center Roof and the Fair Oaks Recreation Center Roof. Projects range from small improvements, such as replacement of tennis court fencing at Hurt Road Park, to large renovations, such as the enlargement and renovation of the Cobb County Civic Center. The largest project to date in either program is the 41,000 SF Jim R. Miller Park Event Center which provides an exhibit hall venue for numerous events throughout the year including the annual North Georgia State Fair.

Many of the projects have come in under the projected budget allowing PARKS to pursue additional projects.

Timing of construction is extremely important to minimize impacts to the many recreational groups that call Cobb’s parks their home facility. Facilities in the two programs include, but are not limited to: athletic fields, Cobb County Civic Center, indoor aquatic centers, arts centers, Mable House Amphitheatre and associated buildings, a historic farm, parking lots (with ADA improvements), open space parks, splash pads, Anderson Theatre, and recreation centers.
