On Tuesday, May 17th, the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners approved the creation of the Sugarloaf Community Improvement District. The new CID is expected to generate over $184,000 per year to fund transportation improvements in the Sugarloaf Parkway Corridor near the intersection of I-85 and the surrounding area. The Sugarloaf CID will include 43 commercial properties that have agreed to pay into the District to fund transportation, landscaping and public safety improvements in the area. The CID is expected to aid impending development in the area, building on the momentum of development around the Infinite Energy Center Arena and Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce.
This will be the sixth CID in Gwinnett County and the 23rd CID in Atlanta region. From launching bike share programs to diverging diamond intersections and the $1 Billion I-285/GA-400 interchange, CIDs have become a proven mechanism for implementing transportation improvements that alleviate traffic and enhance connectivity as well as improve public safety and community aesthetics. The Council congratulates the Sugarload CID on theer successful approval after working towards formation for over a year and looks forward to partnering and working with them to promote quality development and economic success in Gwinnett and region-wide.
