Hi Saintmarks,

You're slightly out of date (not surprising, of course). Trickum is the Mabry zone's western boundary. There's nothing "west of Trickum" zoned to Mabry.

Yep. Trickum Road has been the boundary between McCleskey and Mabry since 1983--and now is the boundary between Kell and Lassiter (north of Shallowford Road). However, small streets on the west side of Trickum with no other outlet do attend Mabry/Lassiter. Neighborhoods on the west side of Trickum with an outlet somewhere else (think North Landing, Tremont, etc.) attend McCleskey/Kell.

The east side/areas-along-Trickum-with-no-outlet become Simpson south of Rocky Mountain Road.

There are so many in-fill neighborhoods in East Cobb now. You will probably be amazed when you drive around.

In high school, I use to say East Cobb was "completed" in 1989. The in-fill phenomenon in East Cobb really took an upswing beginning in the mid-1990's. East Cobb people are always saying--"I didn't even know there was enough land there [for whatever in-fill neighborhood]!"

I should remember that Trickum was the boundary as I drove a bus for Mabry back in the early 90s and Keheley all went to McKlesky and that was pretty much everything west of Trickum. But even my brother's neighborhood (Forest Chase? can't remember exactly, but between Mabry and Davis Road) was a similar neighborhood to those off of Trickum. Nice enough but not upper income mansionettes for sure.

I would say the majority of the land that has become the upper end "infill" neighborhoods came from folks who moved out to that part of Cobb in the 60s and 70s, bought 5 acres or so, put up the classic brick ranch and then sold to developers in the 90s. A couple of those size next to each other, 10 to 12 acres, lift up the ranch house on a truck and roll it out and stick a couple of cul de sacs on the property, and voila! 20 to 30 (or more) lots for $600k mansionettes!

The big John Weiland development at the southwest corner of Sandy Plains and Shallowford (Northampton?) was the last large tract for a good size subdivision in the whole area, seems that started building out in the mid 90s. The rest has had to come from the infill type development I mention above.

Yes, Northampton, in "northern" East Cobb, was the last large piece of land in East Cobb.


Easthampton, in "middle" East Cobb, was the next to last large piece of land in East Cobb and it was started just a few years before Northampton.



That John Wieland sure knows how to get it...!
