Gwinnett County comprehensive transportation plan opens to public input

Lawrenceville, Feb 17, 2017 — Gwinnett County is updating their Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP), Destination2040.

Destination2040, funded by Gwinnett County and the Atlanta Regional Commission, is examining the many changes that have occurred in the County’s population, employment, land use, and development since the adoption of the 2008 CTP.

After hearing from County’s residents during 2016, the planning team is preparing for its second round of public meetings.

There will be 6 meetings across the County in the coming weeks; each featuring the same content. These meetings are designed as drop-in sessions with a brief presentation as well as activity stations to help people learn more about the Destination2040 transportation projects, the Countywide Trails Master Plan, and upcoming transit enhancements.

The first public meeting where public input on constraining the project list will be held on Monday at Lilburn City Hall.

The second meeting will be held on March 2, at Snellville City Hall.

The third meeting will follow on March 6, at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center.

Each of the first three meetings will last from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

After a 10-day break, the meetings will continue on March 16, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at Dacula Park.

The next meeting will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on March 18 at the Shorty Howell Park Activity Building.

The final meeting will then be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on March 20 at George Pierce Park.

There is also an online survey to solicit feedback about the proposed projects. Visit the Destination2040 website for more information and regular updates.
