Tennis Court Erosion Issues
Posted on Jul 13th, 2018

Update on erosion problem
As reported in the last update, Cobb County permitting unexpectedly made the decision to have the state sign off on the project when they determined the creek is actually state water, not county.  The final plans were submitted around February 1, and the state EPD has 45 days to review and either approve the plans or request changes. That means we should hear by March 9 or so. If the state wants additional changes, that could reset the 45-day clock.  However, both the company we hired and the engineer tell us the state usually turns around those subsequent reviews pretty quickly. We have relayed our concerns to the company about the recent heavy rains, but the engineer says, after reviewing aerial photos of the creek from the last 10 years, that he hasn’t seen much erosion and isn’t too concerned for the short term.  Unfortunately, this means that now we’re looking at mid-March at the earliest for construction to begin. The tennis courts will be out of commission until the project is complete. This has been as frustrating for the board as we are sure it has been for you.
PARENTS:  While the tennis court fence is down, it may be tempting for kids to ride their bikes on the courts.  This will damage the courts, and our cameras will capture anyone doing this. Please tell your children this is not a play area.  It is a work site and could be dangerous.
