Every project funded by the 2011-15 SPLOST will improve the quality of life in Cobb County by maintaining, improving and enhancing County parks, transportation, infrastructure, public safety, libraries, senior services, judicial and public health facilities.

As a result, Cobb County will be a better place to live, work, and play.
