The Friends for the Tritt Park also launched a website to further its mission, which it says is "dedicated to creating the Norris and Wylene Tritt Park."
The group, which sprang from efforts to oppose the proposed Isakson Living senior complex on the 53.7-acre Tritt property, intends to file as a non-profit, along similar lines as the Friends for the East Cobb Park and the Friends of Mabry Park.

Isakson Living sought the CCRC designation in a zoning application that was withdrawn earlier this month following community opposition, mainly due to the density of the 987-unit proposal.
While the developer intends to refile revised plans for the same site early next year, the Tritt Park group wants to raise money to purchase the land adjacent to East Cobb Park.
The Tritt property, owned by Wylene Tritt (her husband Norris died in 1987), remains under contract to Isakson Living pending rezoning. The land was the site of the Tritt family farm that became the couple's home when they married in 1950.
In a Tritt family page on the Isakson Living website, Wylene Tritt is quoted as saying that "I'm convinced that a CCRC represents the best use of the land."
