Community Vision

Pierce County was created from parts of Appling and Ware Counties. Georgia’s 119th county was named for Franklin Pierce, 14th President of the United States. Since its creation Pierce County has become a growing and dynamic community. Pierce County is now entering another important era of transition, with growth expected to increase by approximately 30% over the next 20 years. Proper planning for the future requires careful consideration of basic assumptions concerning anticipated population growth, expected employment patterns, and likely housing trends. From these assumptions come projections that tell us what the County might expect between now and 2025.
