Welcome to the Coweta County Joint Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) webpage. This page is a great resource for staying in the know on the CTP.
What is the CTP
In 2005, the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) initiated a program to encourage counties and their municipalities to develop joint long-range transportation plans. Coweta County, along with municipalities of Grantville, Haralson, Moreland, Newnan, Senoia, Sharpsburg, and Turin completed a CTP in 2006. The CTP Update, approved in 2014, confirmed the needs identified in the 2006 plan and prioritizes a suite of multi-modal projects and strategies to meet those needs.
Goals and Objectives
The ultimate goal of the CTP is to develop a plan for a comprehensive transportation system that improves mobility, connectivity, and safety for the efficient movement of people and goods within and outside of Coweta County. It seeks to:
- Promote coordination of land use and transportation
- Support economic and community development
- Improve accessibility, connectivity, and safety, for the movement of people and goods
- Develop a multimodal transportation system that maximizes community and regional support
- Preserve and enhance the natural and social environment
Whenever there is an update to the CTP, public participation is key to developing a plan that meets the needs of the community.
Five (5) public information meetings on the Joint CTP Update approved in 2014 were held throughout the county in July – August 2013. A virtual public information meeting was posted in August 2013 on the county’s website. In addition, a Countywide Public Open House was held on November 7, 2013 at the Coweta County Fairgrounds Conference Center to provide citizens with an opportunity to review the draft plan recommendations and provide input. Social media was used throughout the process to communicate with the citizens about CTP Update.
