2018 Comprehensive Plan Update

Bartow County and Cities Joint Comprehensive Plan

Your input is needed!  Help us plan for the future of Bartow County!

Bartow County and the Cities of Adairsville, Cartersville, Emerson, Euharlee, Kingston, Taylorsville, and White have begun the process of updating the Joint Comprehensive Plan, from Fall 2016 through early Spring 2018. 

State requirements must be met; some of these requirements are involving broad community leadership in the planning process through a series of Stakeholder Meetings which will use a Strengths, Weakness, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) process, and bringing in public opinion through surveys and events.  Each Steering Committee meeting is open to the public.

Please consider this an open invitation to our next meeting on February 23, 2017 from 3-5 pm at the Clarence Brown Convention Center, 5450 State Route 20, Cartersville, GA 30121.  Please forward this invitation to any others whom you feel should be involved in this planning effort.

Agenda topics will include:

  • Survey Results To Date, Expand Outreach
  • Other outreach- Meetings, Groups, Civic Organizations
  • Environmental Criteria (Water Supply Watersheds, Wetlands, Groundwater Recharge Areas) and Natural, Historical, Cultural Resources (Review Maps and Make Any Additions)
  • Planning for Land Use (Future Development or Future Land Use Maps)
  • Intergovernmental Coordination, and Service Delivery Strategy
  • New Community Work Program

Citizens are being asked to participate in an on-line survey to help determine what is important for the future of Bartow County and its cities. Please click on the link below to fill out the survey. All responses to the survey itself are anonymous. At the end you will be asked if you want to volunteer for future implementation of the plan and these names are kept in a separate file for reference later.

Thank you!
