Established by the Town Center Community Improvement District (CID) in 2015, the Town Center Community Alliance (TCCA or simply the Alliance) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to shaping the future of Town Center by supporting and funding beautification, greenspace and other quality of life initiatives that help foster a sense of place within the district. The Alliance seeks to preserve and enhance the area’s natural beauty while creating opportunities for outdoor recreation by developing parks, trails, landscapes, artwork displays and other quality of life initiatives, like the Zagster Town Center Bike Share program.
Currently, the Alliance is working on Aviation Park, Bells Ferry Trailhead and Founders Park, bringing additional lush greenspace to the district. Aviation Park is located adjacent to the Cobb County International Airport and offers state of the art playground equipment, restrooms and grassy open area for plane watching all with a charming flight theme. Alongside Kennesaw State University, the Alliance developed a historical and educational installation program for Aviation Park. This program will add exhibits encouraging visitors to learn more about the history of aviation in Cobb County and beyond in an interactive way. Founders Park adds an additional bike share station, shade structure, and seating along Noonday Creek Trail in the heart of many office parks on the corner of Roberts Boulevard and Vaughn Road. Those using Noonday Creek Trail have several opportunities to stop along their trip and enjoy their surroundings.
Unlike the Town Center CID, which is supported through a voluntary tax from commercial property owners, the Alliance may accept donations from anyone in or outside the district who wishes to contribute to its projects, offering more diverse investment opportunities. These funds also enable the Alliance to invest in projects outside the Town Center CID’s 6.25-mile boundary area, as appropriate. If you or your organization would like to become an Alliance sponsor, please contact Alliance Director Jennifer Hogan at Jennifer@towncentercid.com.
