 Comprehensive Plan 

The purpose of the Paulding County Community Development Plan is to describe the history, current state and future vision for Paulding County and establish a roadmap for how to make that vision a reality.  Counties and communities are continually changing over time and it is imperative that planning is done in order to better understand the needs of the residents and how those needs can be met now and in the future. Effective plans act as a guide for decision-making and prioritizing investments that shape lives and have the potential to create livable communities with a high quality of life for all residents.
