Bartow County’s outlook remains very positive for many years to come. With our growth, transportation and environmental management plans in place, and the renewal of the Special Purpose Local Options Sales Tax (SPLOST) for six more years, the county is positioned to meet the challenges of growth, maintain its rural and small town charm and our sense of community while continuing to protect important historic and environmental resources.
Because of the strength and diversity of our economy, the county will continue to attract new residents from the Southeast region and beyond. Also, it will remain a favorable location for new businesses and industries and for the expansion of existing businesses.
Population growth is expected to average about four percent (4%) annually for the next two to three decades and will likely surpass 100,000 by 2010 and 200,000 by 2030. Being our most important asset, our people provide a large skilled workforce and a strong leadership base to help sustain our community as one of the best places in America to live, work and raise a family.
