Comprehensive Plan

The Comprehensive Plan is the guiding policy document for growth and development in the City of Acworth. In the State of Georgia, all local governments are required to adopt comprehensive plans, in compliance with the Georgia Planning Act.

In 2022 the city coordinated with the Atlanta Regional Commission to complete the 10 year update to the Comprehensive Plan.

The Plan consists of several elements including Housing, Natural and Community Resources, Economic Development, Population and Land Use, which includes the Future Land Use Map. The Plan also includes a Short Term Work Program (STWP) and Capital Improvement Plan (CIE). These sections direct the City on implementation of projects within a five-year timeframe. The City is responsible for updating the Short Term Work Program and Capital Improvement Element annually.

The City of Acworth reviews the STWP of the Comprehensive Plan annually; therefore, the most recent update to the Comprehensive Plan/STWP can be viewed by clicking the photo below:
