Paulding County CTP

What is a Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP)?

A CTP is a county-wide, long-range multimodal transportation plan that assesses a county’s existing and future surface transportation needs for all users.  This includes roadways, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, transit services, and freight considerations. The goals of a CTP are to assist with identifying short- and long-term transportation priorities, to establish a relationship between local and regional opportunities, and to reinforce and support other local and regional planning and funding initiatives.

These plans are typically updated every 5 years.

2022 Comprehensive Transportation Plan Update

During 2022, the County and our municipal partners are updating both their Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) and Comprehensive Plan. These two plans play a vital role in moving forward the community’s vision for the future and facilitating growth that is well managed, sustainable, and enhances quality of life. Paulding County currently has the thirteenth highest population in Georgia. It was the second fastest growing county by percentage in Metro Atlanta over the last decade. By 2050, it is anticipated that Paulding County's population will exceed 250,000.

The CTP will undergo a major update, while the Comprehensive Plan is undergoing a limited update. As such, Charting the Course will largely focus on transportation, building on the County’s growth vision, articulated in the Comprehensive Plan.

We cannot complete the CTP Update without citizen input.  Over 2022, the team will be hosting public engagement events to gather citizen input and priorities regarding transportation.  Your feedback and participation will provide valuable insight that will guide the future of transportation investments in the County for years to come.   

The 2022 CTP update is proposed to be completed by the end of calendar year 2022, and then will be presented to the Board of Commissioners for adoption.

2015 Comprehensive Transportation Plan

Paulding County last completed a Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) Update in 2015.  This update began in 2013.  At that time, Paulding County Department of Transportation, along with our partners, began the process of preparing an update to the Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) for the County. The adopted 2015 Plan Update built upon the findings and recommendations of the 2008 CTP but independently assessed all recommended projects and included a stronger emphasis on the relationship between land use and transportation.
