Cobb County residents will be asked November 3 to renew the county’s Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) for another six years. The current SPLOST, which has built regional libraries, major transportation projects, and upgraded Cobb County parks and buildings, will expire in December of 2021. The SPLOST has been a fixture in Cobb County for decades, helping the county and its cities upgrade its infrastructure without putting more burden on property taxes. If voters approve the extension, the focus will be maintaining that infrastructure, while also building a new animal shelter, upgrade public safety facilities, and continuing needed improvements to park facilities. The SPLOST Renewal Program has been developed to address the immediate public safety, transportation, public services (parks, libraries, and senior centers) and support services (facilities and technology) needs that affect the future of Cobb County. If approved by Cobb County voters in November 2020, SPLOST sales tax collection for this program will begin on January 1, 2022 and end on December 31, 2027.

The Cobb 2022 SPLOST Renewal Program of projects includes “Tier 1” and “Tier 2” categories. Tier 2 projects will be implemented only if SPLOST revenues exceed projections and tax proceeds are available after the funding of all of the Tier 1 projects at their estimated costs.
