SPLOST has made an incredible impact on Floyd County since the first vote in 1986. 

Past projects include the widening of Shorter Avenue, the Judicial Center, Walker Mountain Landfill, the joint Law Enforcement Center, Advent Health Stadium, the Floyd County Health Department, Fire Station upgrades, the ECO Center, the Armuchee Connector, the new Public Animal Welfare Services building, and numerous parks and park upgrades throughout both cities and the county among many other SPLOST investments.

Since its inception in Floyd County, the one-cent SPLOST has allowed for over $300 million of capital investments in Floyd County, the City of Rome, and the City of Cave Spring.
