Quality of Life

     

 

Welcome to a place that has taken the preservation of an outstanding quality of life very seriously. Whether you're joining us for a visit or are meeting us as a new neighbor, you'll find Carroll County to be a community of diversity and opportunity in a setting of natural beauty and southern charm. This is truly an exciting time to be in Carroll County; many positive developments are taking place, garnering us regional, statewide and national attention.

 

Carroll County is a vibrant and growing county located in northwest Georgia, USA. We are uniquely situated between Atlanta, Georgia (1 hour, east) and Birmingham, Alabama (2 hours, west) with Interstate 20 running through the northern part of our county. Carroll County enjoys the amenities of Atlanta but maintains a real sense of local community. We also benefit from a large regional airport, a growing state university with over 10,600 students, a comprehensive technical college, and strong public and private schools.

 

Carroll County is a regional economic center with seven municipalities and a pro-business county government. We have a population of slightly over 107,000 and a retail and employment draw of approximately 600,000 and employment of over 800,000. Carroll County has a diverse and growing industrial base and retail and service sectors continue to grow rapidly. Our county is comprised of business leaders, partners, and supporters who are committed to creating a vibrant community in which to live, work and play. We call it the "Dynamic Balance". Along with our sister organization, Carroll Tomorrow, our Chamber helps fulfill the serious commitment of planned economic and community development encouraged by the citizens of this community.

 

The Carroll County Chamber of Commerce has been the economic engine in this community for the past fifty-three years. Today, the Chamber enjoys the success of an organization with 600+ members, an active board of director, and talented staff. The Chamber offers a variety of activities, networking events, and seminars geared toward serving the needs of the membership and the community. The Chamber executes the annual plan through a committee structure with 15 standing committees and other ad hoc committees as needed. Active volunteers and strong leadership are trademarks of this Chamber and this outstanding community.
