MARIETTA – Did you know that you still have time to participate in Cobb County’s Comprehensive Transportation Plan?

The County’s CTP was last completed in 2015 and much has changed in that time! Population has increased, and transportation needs, and opinions have shifted within the County and region. At the same time, new technologies and transportation solutions are now available that can enhance and transform Cobb’s future transportation system.

To update the CTP and leverage these new tools and strategies, the County and the Cities are embarking on CobbForward—the County’s CTP for 2050. CobbForward is coming back to the community to gather input on a series of surface transportation (pedestrian, bicycling, and trail) and transit projects. Your feedback and participation in CobbForward will help to inform the future of transportation investments in the County for the next 30 years.

As the County considers the potential for new future funding options, CobbForward will form the transportation basis of how potential local, state, and federal dollars could be invested back into the community. Some of the surface transportation projects are anticipated to be elevated into the Regional Transportation Plan (managed by the Atlanta Regional Commission) while the transit component of CobbForward will ultimately be incorporated into the Atlanta region’s transit vision, which will be developed and managed by the Atlanta Transit Link Authority (The ATL). The planning now will position Cobb County for additional future transportation funding opportunities.

To register for a Cobb County-sponsored virtual public meeting, visit There are two remaining virtual public meetings - Saturday, May 15th from 9:30 - 11:00 am and Wednesday, May 19th from 11:30 am - 1:00 pm.
