Storemy Trucking Application Denied, Public Hearing Still Pending
The Gwinnett County Planning Commission met on June 5 to hear a proposal from Storemy Trucking to use the former Pike’s Nursery property, located at the 6100 block of Lawrenceville Highway, as a parking lot for its 222 trucks. The community of Oak Hill, located off of Mimosa Drive, was concerned that the trucks would have difficulty making a left turn on an already congested Lawrenceville Highway and would lead to further deterioration of the roads.
Upon hearing the vocal concerns of the community, Keith Crystal, of Storemy Trucking, attempted to withdraw his application within three minutes of his proposal. The Planning Commission took into account the negative community feedback and voted unanimously against the project.
There will be a public hearing on Tuesday, June 26, at 7 p.m. at the Gwinnett Justice and Administrative Center to determine the final fate of the Storemy Trucking application as well as an application from Dalu Management LLC for an automobile sales and repair shop on the 800 block of Pleasant Hill Road.

Lilburn CID Updates on Improvements and Repairs
A $900,000, two-mile installation of new sidewalks is being constructed along Lawrenceville Highway. The new stretch of sidewalks greatly improves the curb appeal and the safety of the area, and as a result, the Lilburn Alliance Church is seeing the impact.
“Thanks so much for the excellent work that is being done in front of our church to install new sidewalks. We have 2,000 homes right around the church. As a pastor, I want to love, care, serve and support the families that live in the homes. We regularly see people out walking around our church and in the parking lots. We love it! They are out enjoying God’s creation and getting good exercise. Now, because of the new sidewalks out in front of the church, the walkers will be able to enjoy a longer and safer walk right along Lawrenceville Hwy. Thanks so much for improving our community.” – Stephen Hartley, Lilburn Alliance Church
