Lilburn Community Improvement District March 2018 Newsletter
The March 13 Lilburn CID owners meeting was well attended, and members heard a state of the district update from Georgia House of Representatives Clay Cox (R- Lilburn) and then heard from Doug Stacks, director of planning and economic development for the City of Lilburn. Stacks provided the latest information on city plans, projects and recent land acquisitions to continue to improve the district. The final presentation by Eric Lusher, senior project manager of Transportation and Community Development – Pond, provided an overview of Gwinnett 2040, the County’s unified plan.
The Georgia Department of Community Affairs requires all counties and cities in Georgia to have a comprehensive plan, and the purpose of the Unified Plan is to provide a road map of how the County’s residents and other stakeholders want to see it grow and develop over the next 20 years. Lusher described how the plan will help determine how transportation, housing, land use and economic development will work together. If you’d like to review the plan, please click here.
Currently, the County is conducting a survey as part of the plan’s research phase. If you’re interested in participating – click here to take a short survey before May 31.
The Lilburn CID is proud to announce that Lilburn City Council member Eddie Price replaced Norman Nash as the city appointee on the LCID board of directors. In addition, the owners elected Anand Mehta as board secretary. Congratulations to both!

Gwinnett Chamber – On Topic
On March 28, members of the LCID attended the Gwinnett Chamber’s On Topic Transportation Talk featuring Russell McMurry, Commissioner of the Georgia Department of Transportation and Chris Tomlinson, Executive Director of the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority.
There’s also been a great deal of interest in the development of a shuttle route from the Lilburn CID to the Centers for Disease Control’s campus on Clifton Road at Emory University. The meeting allowed the LCID to gain more information on the development of this critical link from the district. More to come!

District Wide Cleanup occurs on Lawrenceville Hwy and Jimmy Carter Blvd. has increased from once a month to weekly. The boundaries within the city limits are covered by a joint effort between the CID and the City. Mowing occurs outside the city limits to supplement the GDOT and Gwinnett County mowing three times per year, but the LCID is working with both governments to increase the frequency to improve curb appeal.
