Join us to clean up Bells Ferry Road
It’s time again for the Bells Ferry Civic Assoc. Adopt-a-Mile clean up! Please join us on Saturday, March 24, from 9-11 a.m. as we pick up trash along Bells Ferry Road from Hawkins Store Rd south to the Fire Dept. This would be the perfect opportunity for high school students to earn their required service hours. We pick up non-hazardous litter from both sides of the street. We will meet at the Waffle House at Orchard Square where safety vests, grabbers, trash bags, and safety training will be provided by Keep Cobb Beautiful.
If you cannot volunteer for this event, we'll have quarterly clean ups along our mile that we'll post. We also encourage you and your group to adopt your own mile. Visit www.keepcobbbeautiful.org or call (770) 528-1135 for more Adopt-a-Mile info.
Introducing Officer Pharr: Community engagement officer
We would like to introduce everyone to Officer Fernando Pharr. He is with the Cobb County Police Department and is the new Community Engagement Officer for Precinct 1. Part of his responsibilities include working with citizens to identify and resolve issues which affect the livability of our immediate area. Specifically, he can help with speeding, stop sign issues and code violations in neighborhoods. He is also available to attend your Home Owner Association Meeting or board meeting, and can be contacted at Fernando.email@example.com.
As Cobb County continues to grow and develop, issues impacting the well-being of area residents are constantly surfacing; issues such as traffic speed and congestion, zoning and development, environmental quality, preservation of open space, crime control and prevention, and neighborhood enhancements. The BFCA is an all-volunteer organization from the Bells Ferry corridor. We work with local legislators, environmental groups, law enforcement officials, residents and neighborhood associations within our area to address these issues head-on as they arise. Individuals are encouraged to actively participate in their communities and the decisions affecting them.
