Kennesaw basically contains two zip codes: 30144 (City of Kennesaw) and 30152 (unincorporated Kennesaw). Perhaps newcomers unfamiliar with the area will find the distinction useful. City residents pay an extra city tax; non-city residents do not.

All told, Kennesaw has about 70,000 residents.

No.

30144 stretches well beyond the incorporated city limits of Kennesaw.

And--the city limits of incorporated Kennesaw also stretch into 30152.

I wonder if there will be parking there as I am not familiar with the area. It's hard to tell from the pictures. The work they have done on the two houses is amazing. I just looked on the internet and did not even recognize the two houses until I took a closer look. Wow!

KENNESAW — State authorities plan to have a bus that will take riders from Kennesaw to Atlanta up and running by the end of 2016.

The Georgia Regional Transportation Authority board adopted a plan Wednesday that will increase bus services from counties surrounding Atlanta, including Cobb, to the metro area.

The plan will expand the transportation authority’s Xpress bus system, which offers routes to get riders to and from work during morning and evening commute times on the weekdays.

The additions to the state bus system include a new bus route that will connect Kennesaw to Atlanta. The route will take riders from the park-and-ride lot near Town Center to the Civic Center in Atlanta.

Another route added will take riders from the Town Center park-and-ride lot to the Perimeter Mall park-and-ride lot in Sandy Springs.

The cost of the additions will come out of the state authority’s $24 million annual operating budget, said Matt Markham, spokesman for the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority.

Those routes will be up and running by the end of 2016, Markham said.

The new bus lines would create the same connection from Kennesaw to Atlanta proposed in the bus rapid transit plan Cobb County has studied since 2011.

The county transportation department is working to complete an environmental study on the BRT plan, which is expected in September, in order to be eligible for federal funding.

The BRT line proposes a bus system allowing buses to run alongside Cobb Parkway in a dedicated lane to bypass traffic lights.

Kellie Brownlow, deputy chief for Chairman Tim Lee, said Friday Lee was not familiar enough with the expansion of the Xpress buses to comment on the topic. However, she added that it cannot be compared to his BRT proposal.

“As far as the chairman is concerned, BRT is not an active project. Should staff ever decide to make a recommendation to move BRT forward, the board will consider it at the time. If the board chooses to accept the recommendation, the final decision will be put to Cobb voters in a referendum,” Brownlow said.

Faye DiMassimo, Cobb’s transportation director, said the state’s new bus services will help residents get to jobs in Atlanta.

“From Cobb’s perspective, this commitment of new service from GRTA enhances job center connectivity and service to our commuters,” DiMassimo said.

ELIMINATING LINE

The county currently operates five GRTA commuter bus routes that run from Cobb to Atlanta, according to Jim Wilgus, deputy director of the Cobb transportation department. GRTA funds the routes and Cobb Community Transit, the county’s bus service, operates them.

One of those routes will be enhanced and another eliminated according to the state authority’s newly adopted plan.

Route 475, which goes from the Mableton park-and-ride lot on Floyd Road to the Civic Center MARTA station in downtown Atlanta, will be enhanced, according to Markham.

Route 480 runs from the Acworth park-and-ride lot on Lake Acworth Drive to the MARTA station near Five Points in Atlanta.

The Mableton route to Atlanta will be closed because it does not attract enough riders.

MARIETTA — With the demand for housing in the county rising, the number of building permits for single-family residences issued in Cobb this year has seen a corresponding increase when compared to this time last year.

The growth in residential construction in the county is part of a nationwide trend of increased homebuilding, based on numbers released by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development this week.

A total of 129 building permits for single-family housing units were issued in Cobb and its six cities in June, up from 107 issued in June 2014. Additionally, 125 building permits for single-family homes were issued in July, up from 107 issued in July 107.

Through the first seven months of 2015, a total of 929 building permits for single-family homes were issued around the county — 152 more than had been issued at this time last year.

Wendy Bunch, a real estate broker and owner of Marietta-based RE/MAX Pure, said the county does not have a large standing inventory of homes for sale, so home construction is on the rise in response.

“I think builders are seeing more confidence in the market, so we’re seeing more new construction, which is a great thing,” Bunch said. “When new construction started coming back around, that was a great sign of a change and the moving forward of the economy.”

Susann Bouchillon, new home consultant with Marietta-based homebuilder Brock Built Properties Inc., said her company can’t get homes “out of the ground fast enough.”

Manget, Brock Built’s residential development at the corner of Frasier and Manget streets in Marietta, will consist of 105 single-family homes and 10 townhomes after it is complete, likely in the next two and a half years, Bouchillon said.

The first phase, consisting of 26 homes, have all been sold, she said. Phase two will see 25 homes added to the development, and though the homes were listed for presale just a week ago, one of the homes is already under contract, Bouchillon said.

Brock Built Properties has four residential developments, including Manget and a townhome development called Manor Park just off the Square, under construction in Marietta, she said.

There are three groups that are buying homes today, Bouchillon said. The first are older people who are “right-sizing” and looking for smaller properties after their children leave home. The second group is made up of young professionals looking to purchase their third house.

The third type of people who have previously lost homes during the recession due to foreclosure and have been renting since then.

“The best description is that the market is exploding,” Bouchillon said.

Lawrence Yun, chief economist for the National Association of Realtors, told the organization’s official magazine the increase in housing starts will help relieve “tightness” in the inventory of homes available.

“There is no need to worry about an oversupply,” Yun said. “Even more production would be welcomed.”

According to a market trend report published by RE/MAX of Georgia Wednesday, there were 6,336 homes sold in metro Atlanta in July 2015, a 19 percent increase over the 5,325 homes closed on in July 2014.

Bunch said she thinks the demand for new homes and the corresponding increase in housing starts will continue, partially due to low interest rates.

“(Interest rates) are at a historical low right now, so that’s one of the reasons people are wanting to get into something now while they can, while the rates are low,” Bunch said.

Of Cobb’s six cities, Acworth led the way in July with 22 building permits for single-family homes, followed by Marietta and Smyrna with 17 permits each. Kennesaw issued three permits last month, Powder Springs issued one permit and Austell did not issue any.

In June, Smyrna saw the most permits issued with 23, followed by Marietta with 22 and Acworth with 9. Kennesaw issued seven permits for single-family homes in June, Austell issued six and Powder Springs issued 3.

Nationwide, there were 782,000 single-family homes that began construction in July, a 12.8 percent increase compared to the 693,000 that began in June, according to a joint report released Tuesday by the U.S. Census Bureau and the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Of the 782,000 housing starts for single-family units, 409,000 were in the South, the report states.

July’s housing starts for single-family homes are up 19 percent compared to July 2014, the report states.
