Upcoming public meetings will address a proposal by Cobb Community Development staff to change the names of some Six Flags roadways in an effort to improve public safety response times and reduce confusion.

The roads being looked at are Six Flags Drive, Six Flags Parkway, Six Flags Road and Six Flags Way.

Public meetings are the first step in the process. One will be held Wednesday, Jan. 22, from 6 to 7 p.m. at South Cobb Recreation Center, 875 Six Flags Drive. A third meeting will be held at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 28, in the BOC room on the second floor of 100 Cherokee St., Marietta. Another meeting was previously held Jan. 15.

This is the first major investment in the Six Flags area in decades. It is fitting that one of the streets be headlined "Bronner" "BRONNER SIX FLAGS DRIVE" Six Flags should remain a part of all of the streets so as not to confuse the public. It is also a nationally recognized name for visitors. Other impactfful leaders should also share in the recognition by having their names added to these streets. The roads being looked at are Six Flags Drive, Six Flags Parkway, Six Flags Road and Six Flags Way. "This facility is an example of someone who stopped talking and started doing," former Gov. Roy Barnes said of Bishop Bronner's dream. "Now we have that place that changes the community and those who live in it." "This edifice is extraordinary," said Rep. David Scott.
