The Planning Division is responsible for comprehensive planning for the county. Planning coordinates the plans and development policy between Cobb County and other jurisdictions. There are five primary responsibilities: long-range (comprehensive) planning, research, preservation, local planning (intergovernmental) and mapping.
2040 Comprehensive Plan
Cobb County is updating its Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan is a long-range, community designed growth strategy that will continue to make Cobb County an attractive place to invest, conduct business, and raise a family. The current plan, adopted in 2007 with subsequent annual amendments, covers the time period between 2007 and 2030. The update will extend the current plan’s growth outlook to 2040. The 2040 Comprehensive Plan, which is mandated by the State of Georgia, will help Cobb County manage expected population and employment growth and coordinate major public investments in Public Safety, Transportation, Community Facilities, and other important elements that make Cobb a great place to live, work and play.
