SPLOST Status Update – Thursday, July 08, 2021


Thank you to the citizens for this SPLOST and for participating in its success. Because of you, your SPLOST revenues are outperforming original projections. During this COVID-19 pandemic that has affected every person and industry, we want the citizens, businesses, and stakeholders of Douglas County to know that your SPLOST dollars and projects are still being managed. Please contact us with any questions by visiting [] or contacting our SPLOST Communications Director, David Good at


We have several of our larger projects either completed or nearing completion: Douglas County's $16 million Public Safety Radio Systems has been completed and came in under budget and is in service. The 18,000 Sqft Lithia Springs Senior Center has been built and is ready for programming; the construction of the 30,000 Sqft Boundary Waters Activity Center, replacing the Post Road bridge over Dog River, and the replacement of the Whitestone Culvert on White Stone Boulevard are nearing completion. Other projects are in some form of procurement, scope, design or construction; such as yearly paving of thoroughfares throughout the county, improving traffic congestion on Hwy 5 @ Douglas Blvd, increasing our Fire/EMS fleet, and replacing the concession buildings at Bill Arp Park & FairPlay Park. You can see the projects that are underway and all the projects that have been completed by viewing the monthly reports on our website.  

Pictured below is the new 18,000 SQFT Lithia Springs Senior Center, one of the basketball courts with the elevated track in the background of the nearly completed Boundary Waters Activity Center, the recently upgraded and updated intersection of Sweetwater Church Rd., Dorris Rd., High Point Rd. & Bakers Ridge Rd., the new Whitestone Culvert that replaces the old culvert that was wiped out during the 2009 flood and the upgrade to Post Rd bridge as it goes over Dog River.
