Comprehensive Transportation Plan

Project Overview

Every five years, Cherokee County takes a close look at the transportation needs of people who live, work, and play throughout the County.  This effort, funded by the Atlanta Regional Commission, will examine the many changes that have occurred in the County’s population, employment, land use and development since the adoption of the 2008 Cherokee County Comprehensive Transportation Plan.


Timeline & Project Status

The Comprehensive Transportation Plan update process kicked off with an Existing Conditions analysis in the summer of 2014 followed by a review of findings with the Stakeholder Advisory Committee.  As the Needs Assessment phase concludes in early 2015, the County will invite the public to attend a public forum.  Draft recommendations will be presented to the public and the final plan will be presented to the County for adoption in the summer of 2015.

Public Involvement Opportunities

With the public’s help, the CTP update will reflect the County’s current transportation needs while addressing future growth opportunities.  Public input and feedback will help ensure the County is on track when developing recommendations for the future of transportation in Cherokee.

Outreach for this project will include a variety of strategies including a Stakeholder Advisory Committee representing local interests that will help guide the project, provide input, and represent the larger community.  A Technical Advisory Committee representing key transportation planning agencies has also been convened that will provide input and guidance on the technical aspects of the project.

The general public will be engaged through a hands-on workshop during the Needs Assessment phase and an Open House presentation of the draft Recommendations Report.   A virtual version of the meetings will be posted online for interested individuals who may not be able to attend in person.
