A Look Ahead to Next 5 Years and Beyond
Five years ago our city was at the tipping point. Office vacancy rates in Technology Park were too high, empty strip malls were appearing on Holcomb Bridge Road, and the rights of way in this once resort-like community were beginning to look unkempt. 
Home values were stable, due largely to great local schools, but housing choices, especially for empty nesters, retirees and millennials were nonexistent. Other communities were organized and focused on redevelopment to attract companies and citizens. Most significantly, as a community, we had no central gathering place. No downtown; no sense of place.  

Today, it's a very different story .

Wasting Water Could Result in a Fine

Despite the increase in rain, the county's water reserve remains low. Gwinnett County is among one of 12 counties in north Georgia under a Drought Level I declaration. The restriction  allows landscape and lawn irrigation, before 10 a.m. and after 4 p.m. 

To improve water conservation efforts, the city has updated its Land Development ordinance. The two revisions include:
  • All new conveyer car washes must use recycled water.
  • Business and residents who waste water due to not repairing a broken irrigation system may be issued citations by the city.
Call Code Enforcement at 678-691-1200 to report a violation.

What are the Benefits of Building Green?

Building green means living better, smarter and healthier. Just by choosing energy-efficient building materials and supplies, homeowners can make positive changes to both the inside and outside environments, creating homes that are better for you and our world.

Building green does not necessarily mean starting from scratch or spending more money. There are many ways to improve the green factor in existing homes by using longer-lasting and sustainable materials.
