2022 SPLOST Summary
Cobb residents will be asked in November of 2020 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 our 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.

If approved, a large portion of the SPLOST revenue will go toward Department of Transportation projects, especially for road resurfacing. The condition of Cobb’s roadways has deteriorated and engineers warn without a significant investment in resurfacing the cost for repairs could be insurmountable.
The SPLOST project list also contains multiple public safety projects, a new animal shelter, parks and library safety enhancements, and funding for projects in Cobb’s six cities. The mayors of those cities recently signed a joint letter urging commissioners to put the project list before the voters, calling SPLOST a crucial part of their infrastructure improvement process.
