Cobb County Community Development to hold series of public workshops on 2040 Comprehensive Plan

(Marietta, Ga. - May 10, 2016) Cobb County Community Development will host a series of public workshops to build upon prior public input and to discuss more information related to Cobb County’s 2040 Comprehensive Plan. From late May to early June, five public workshops will be held at locations throughout the county. The interactive, four-hour workshops will be conducted via an open house format and are designed to establish priority needs and to collect feedback on the proposed vision, goals and policies of the 2040 Comprehensive Plan. In addition, there will also be discussion regarding the county’s Future Land Use guidelines.

"For the plan to be successful, citizens must be actively engaged in the planning process by providing their thoughts and ideas to ensure that the plan reflects the community’s preferences and desires," said Jason Gaines, Cobb County Community Development Planning Division Manager.

The 2040 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 10-year 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 guide and manage expected population and employment growth and coordinate major public investments in Public Safety, Transportation, Community Facilities, and other important elements.
