Regional Overview


Liberty County is one of six saltwater counties and four inland counties that comprise Coastal Georgia, a region regarded as the second-fastest growing part of the state.

Population within the region is expected increase 51 percent from its 2000 level of 558,300 to 844,200 in 2030, according to Georgia Coast 2030: Population Projections for the 10-County Region, a study prepared by Georgia Institute of Technology.

Coastal Georgia's identity is influenced by landforms, culture, history and architectural expression. Parks and preserves, woodland and wildlife areas and wetlands and waterways fill the Eastern Seaboard.

The Coastal Region also is a transportation hub that includes the Port of Savannah and Port of Brunswick for overseas business opportunities and a vast network of domestic railways, four-lane highways and Interstate 95 for continental connectivity. Liberty County is 20 miles from Interstate 16, which connects Coastal Georgia to Interstate 75 and Atlanta.

Savannah/HIlton Head International Airport also serves Coastal Georgia, providing more than 43 daily nonstop flights to Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Philadelphia, New York, and Washington, D.C., according to a January 2015 report.

The region also is host to several military bases to include Fort Stewart, the largest Army installation east of the Mississippi River, and Hunter Army Airfield. The Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay serves as the only east-coast home port of the most modern ballistic missile nuclear powered guided missile submarines. The Townsend Bombing Range is used by all services to fine-tune air combat skills of fighter pilots.
