Community Profile: Doug Stacks, City of Lilburn Director of Planning and Economic Development

Doug Stacks is a nine-year veteran of the City of Lilburn. Doug started his career as a code enforcement officer with Gwinnett County and later was planning director for Snellville before pursuing a career as a professional land planning consultant, specializing in commercial property and vacant land.

Doug StacksAs the Director of Planning and Economic Development for Lilburn since 2008, Doug has been a creative force in re-shaping the department into a “one-stop shop” for plan review, permitting, inspection and occupancy. He has built a reputation for his “real-world, common sense approach to interpretation of codes and ordinances.” His staff includes a planner, planning clerk, building inspector and code enforcement officers as well as a public relations manager and events coordinator.

One of the first initiatives that Doug was involved in was the study for forming the Lilburn Community Improvement District in 2009. At that time, the city faced a new median on Highway 29 from Ronald Reagan Parkway to Postal Way. The formation of the CID was key to helping commercial property owners and businesses minimize any negative impacts of the median. Since those early days, Doug has continued to work closely with the CID Board to leverage grant opportunities so that both organizations maximize the benefits. Doug describes a symbiotic relationship between the city and the CID: “We truly appreciate the efforts of the CID to beautify and improve the efficiency of not only our roadways, but also those leading into Lilburn.”

In addition to working with the CID, Doug and his staff work closely with the Planning Commission and Board of Appeals, Lilburn Downtown Development Authority, Partnership Gwinnett, Gwinnett Chamber and Atlanta Regional Commission.

Workers cutting grass in right-of-wayWe want property owners to be proud to call the CID their home, and we expect even more neighboring landowners to join. Our entire district is poised for sustained revitalization and commercial expansion.

As this report will show, we are working hard to make the greater Highway 29 area the most attractive business corridor in metro Atlanta. We are focused on aggressively cleaning by removing litter and improving landscapes throughout the entire corridor from Ronald Reagan Parkway to Jimmy Carter Boulevard.

 Workers cutting grass in right-of-wayAt the same time, we are planning for substantial transportation upgrades at key intersections – travel and safety enhancements for commercial vehicles and daily commuters.

We greatly appreciate and value your trust and investment in the CID, and will expect more success as we work together in the future. The Board of Directors welcomes your feedback and urges you to contact us if we can be of more assistance.
