On March 15, 2011, a referendum on a four-year SPLOST (Special Local Option Sales Tax) was approved by voters. This program was in effect from Jan. 1, 2012 through Dec. 31, 2015. The projected sales tax over those four years was $492,068,482.

Every project funded by the 2011-15 SPLOST was focused on improving 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 became an even better place to live, work, and play.
