A group called the Commitee for Cityhood in East Cobb, Inc., has formed as a non-profit and commissioned a financial feasibility study, and has had a bill introduced in the Georgia legislature, along with a proposed charter, calling for a referendum in 2020.
The committee announced in December 2019 it was putting its legislative request on hold until 2021, saying “we want to take the time to do it right.”
