Mary Rose Barnes with the Oakdale Community Association said she believes the development would block Georgia Department of Transportation plans to widen South Cobb Drive. Barnes added that she worries the project will bring commercial traffic onto Oakdale Road.
Barnes said the development “will cause a permanent unimaginable traffic nightmare.”
But resident Chris Zweifel said he supports the project, adding that Smyrna and the region needs more housing options.
“I recognize a lack of housing is bad for Smyrna and the region,” Zweifel said.
