This informative event, held in partnership with the Council for Quality Growth and Revitalize Marietta, will define the need for revitalization and redevelopment in Cobb and highlight the financial tools and incentives that allow developers to maximize their investment. The event also presents the opportunity to partner with local and state elected officials to implement stronger redevelopment policies.
