Through the years, various efforts have been made to incorporate East Cobb and form a city, but residents prefer to remain unincorporated - in part because of the tax benefits. You might say that in East Cobb, you can belong to Atlanta’s metro area while still retaining many of the perks of living in a smaller town.
