Gwinnett County is in the early stages of crafting its 2040 Unified Plan and the community is being asked for input. This plan contemplates how land use, transportation, housing, and economic development can work together in the county. It will include a short-term work program of projects to implement the desires of the community in a long-term vision for the future.
Residents are invited to join at one of the upcoming community open houses to learn more about the purpose of the Unified Plan, to review initial findings, and to provide their input.
The first open houses is set for this week, from 5 – 7 p.m. Jan. 25 at Five Forks Library, 2780 Five Forks Trickum Road near Lawrenceville. Gwinnett officials say there will be a variety of stations for people to learn about the plan as well as interactive activities for residents to offer input on different topics.
Similar events are scheduled for:
Jan. 29 at the Dacula branch of the Gwinnett Public Library;
Feb. 1 at the Lilburn Activity Building;
Feb. 12 at the Centerville library branch in Snellville;
Feb. 22 at Bogan Park in Buford.
The final plan will be adopted in October by the Board of Commissioners and then sent to the Atlanta Regional Commission and the state Department of Community Affairs for approval.
