SPLOST

Since 2005, Cobb County voters supported the one-cent Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST).  Voters subsequently approved the tax renewals in 2011, 2016 and 2022.  Although the City has started a new SPLOST program in 2022, because projects are complex with financial and legal hurdles, Kennesaw has ongoing projects from the 2011 and 2016 SPLOST programs.

The amphitheater will be host to City events & concerts. Mayor & Council approved the construction contract of $6.8M in December 2022. Estimated completion date is Spring 2024.

2022 SPLOST

On January 1, 2022, the City of Kennesaw, through Cobb County, started to collect the one-cent tax, which will end on December 31, 2027.  As before, the City identified certain projects in an effort to improve the quality of life for our residents and business owners.  This is why a large portion of SPLOST revenue goes towards Parks & Recreation and Public Works projects.


2016 SPLOST

The 2016 SPLOST Book outlines the County’s overall program, as adopted by the Board of Commissioners on July 22, 2014.  It briefly describes the purpose of each capital improvement and the anticipated corresponding funding.  The 2016 SPLOST addressed the immediate needs of Facilities, Technology, Parks, Libraries, Senior Centers, Public Safety, and Transportation that affect the future of Cobb County.
