Cartersville-Bartow Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO)


The Cartersville-Bartow Metropolitan Planning Organization (CB-MPO) is the intergovernmental transportation planning body for Bartow County. The CB-MPO conducts the federally mandated transportation planning process for the Cartersville Urbanized Area as identified in the 2010 U.S. Census.

An important part of this planning process is the public’s participation in developing long term goals and setting short term priorities for the County’s transportation system. We invite you to review the information and plans provided here, and provide us with your thoughts and feedback at anytime regarding the transportation issues facing our area.

As a new MPO, we must establish several documents that describe how we are going to move forward with the transportation planning process from this point on. These documents are in draft  and final form and available for your review using the link to 'Planning Documents' provided in the left column. We welcome your comments.
Please direct or send your comments to Tom Sills using the contact information provided on this page.
