Cobb County staff will host informational and interactive meetings throughout the county for residents, business owners and property owners to kickoff the public engagement phase of the 10-year update to the Comprehensive Plan for unincorporated Cobb.
Civic engagement is a central component to any planning process. In order for the Cobb 2040 Plan to be successful, residents must be active in the planning process by providing their thoughts and ideas to ensure the plan reflects the community’s preferences and desires.
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 covers the time period between 2007 and 2030. The 10-year update will extend the current plan’s growth outlook to 2040. It will help Cobb guide and manage expected population and employment growth and coordinate major public investments in public safety, transportation, community facilities and other important elements.
All meetings and exercises are designed to be easy and fun for all who care about how their community will grow in the future. There will be one meeting in each of the four commission districts, sharing how the 2040 Comprehensive Plan guides the county, as well as providing information about existing conditions. Interactive sessions will help gather input about the needs and opportunities for Cobb County moving forward over the next 20 years.
