2023 Comprehensive Plan Update
The Open House Review dates previously scheduled for the month of January have been canceled. New dates will be announced soon!
The Rome-Floyd-Cave Spring is beginning to develop a new 5-year work plan for our 2040 Comprehensive Plan. The Plan will set a cohesive vision for the community with a plan to provide the necessary infrastructure to support new development.
The 5-year work plan is intended to guide growth and development in an organized, efficient, and sustainable manner for the next 5-years. To do so, we look to the future to anticipate trends and issues that could impact how growth and development occur and plan our project accordingly.
The Comprehensive Plan is Rome-Floyd-Cave Spring's statement of how we want to grow and develop. The Plan guides where and how private development should occur. It guides how the Rome-Floyd-Cave Spring should provide public facilities and services to support future growth. The Plan is long-range in scope, focusing on the ultimate needs of the community rather than the pressing concerns of today.
The Rome-Floyd Planning Department will provide DCA with 60–90-days to review the updated comprehensive plan and related submittals to verify compliance with applicable standards and state laws. All changes requested by DCA will be made bore the Updated Plan is submitted to the three municipalities for final adoption.

The City of Rome, Floyd County, and the City of Cave Spring will each be presented with the Final Plan Update for adoption at a Public Hearing. These adoption hearings will be set for late spring 2023 – mid-summer 2023. Upon the adoption of the Final Plan Update by all three municipalities, the Comprehensive Plan will be complete by 2028. A full Plan update is scheduled for 2028.
