Some 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. Two will be held at South Cobb Recreation Center, 875 Six Flags Drive, from 6 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 15, and Wednesday, Jan. 22. 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. For more information, call 770-528-2514.

What name they going to change it to? " Armed Robbery Avenue"?

Has anyone checked with first responders to see just how confused they get with the current names? It costs a lot to change all the places that have to be changed to officially change one street name. And changing the names all the time is the biggest reason it is so hard to learn your way around in metro area

If changing a name of a road will lead to stabilizing a community through home ownership, livable wages employment, schools that meet the needs of all students and improving the high school graduation rate to over 80 percent, then I'm all for it.

Try bulldozing all the criminal elements of low cost or low income apartment complexes and re-develop area to force out the crime. I have had several friends or acquaintances move out of West Chase Apartments being robbed or beaten up due to all the thug activity.
