Cobb County Government

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.

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 2040.



In addition to the Comprehensive Plan, the Planning Division also conducts and manages a variety of land use, economic development, and transportation plans that impact various areas of Cobb County.
