Douglas County Home

Welcome to CelebrateDouglasCounty.com!

Douglas County has an estimated population of over 130,000 people, and we continue to rapidly grow. Communication with our citizens and visitors needs to be innovative and convenient, so we use every means and media available to talk to you, listen to you, and let you know what is going on with your government.

CelebrateDouglasCounty.com is one of these efforts!

Whether you are a citizen or someone interested in our County, we are glad that you are visiting our web site.

Douglas County is a wonderful place to live, work and play. We are a changing community - evolving from a rural area to suburbia and becoming the economic hub of west Georgia. However, we ensure that our growth is "smart growth", and that the quality of life continues to be high for all our citizens.

Our school system has high standards. Our roadway and transportation systems are constantly improving. Our Fire/EMS Department is remarkable in its abilities. Our Sheriff's Office keeps the peace and is dependable. Our parks and recreation programs continue to expand. We have an ample and safe water supply. We are a County on the move, and we want you to be a part of it.

We actively recruit and welcome new businesses and job opportunities to Douglas County, so please let us know how we can help you be a success. Your success is important to us because you create jobs for yourself and your neighbors, tax dollars for public services and improvements, and provide another piece of the unique pie that is Douglas County.

We are committed to continuously making our community better. Let us know what you think we should be doing.

Thanks for visiting our web site and for your interest in Douglas County!

Best wishes,
Tom Worthan, Chairman
Board of Commissioners
