WHAT IS A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN? 

A comprehensive plan is a vision document that will guide future growth, development, investment, and land use changes within Cherokee County. 


WHY DOES THIS DOCUMENT NEED TO BE UPDATED? 

The current Cherokee County comprehensive plan was last updated in 2018. Since then, the County has grown rapidly, becoming one of the most populous counties in Metro Atlanta. Updating the comprehensive plan will allow the County to renew their vision of the future for years to come.

VISION
