Acworth, Georgia - Cobb County.
This petition is being initiated on Tuesday, October 12, 2004 to urge our County Commissioner to close down the Yesteryear flea market. If you are from Cobb County, Paulding County, or Bartow County, I invite you to sign this petition to help keep our local traffic down and protect our neighborhoods.
This petition is initiated to close the Yesteryear flea Market on the corner of Highway 41 and Dallas Acworth Highway in Cobb County Georgia. This flea market has been generating an extreme amount of traffic and backups since the larger Highway 41 flea market closed and the vendors moved to the Yesteryear flea market that the local area cannot support.
The flea market does not have adequete parking for all its visitors. Visitors to the flea market are using residential neighborhoods and U-turn areas with no regard to families and children in those neighborhoods.
Visitors to the flea market are using personal driveways to turn around in and driving above the neighborhood speed limit of 25MPH. Due to this influx of traffic from the flea market, we as residents of the surrounding neighborhoods have had to restrict our children from playing outside and riding bikes in the neighborhood. In addition, it is extremely difficult to get in and out of our neighborhoods due to the increased traffic.
Finally, this property has become a major eye sore and makes the area look bad and decreasing the value of surrounding properties.
We, the undersigned, petition to close the Yesteryear flea Market on the corner of Highway 41 and Dallas Acworth Highway in Cobb County Georgia.
