Pooler 2040 is the City of Pooler’s principal guiding document. It is designed to formulate a coordinated, long-term planning program to maintain and enhance the health and viability of the community as a whole.

The Comprehensive Plan serves as a resource to both the public and private sector by projecting how land will develop, how housing will be made available, how jobs will be attracted and retained, how open space and the environment will be protected, how public services and facilities will be provided, and how transportation facilities will be improved.

Service Delivery Strategy

According to the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, the Service Delivery Strategy process gives local governments and authorities the opportunity to reach agreement on the delivery of services in an effective and cost-efficient manner to Georgia's citizens. The intent of the Act is:

  • To provide a flexible framework for local governments and authorities to agree on service delivery arrangements.
  • To minimize any duplication or competition among local governments and authorities providing local services.
  • To provide a method of resolving disputes among service providers regarding service delivery, funding equity and land use.
