Community Improvement Districts (CID) are some of the most powerful and effective public-private partnerships in existence today. The model has been implemented around the country to spur investment and revitalization in communities.
The Gwinnett Village Community Improvement District, the largest in the state of Georgia, is a public-private partnership funded by commercial property owners in the 14 square mile area spanning the I-85 corridor in southwest Gwinnett County. The CID, formed in 2006, represents more than 550 commercial owners, accounting for over $1 Billion in commercial property value. Within the CID, 5,000 businesses employ more than 60,000 workers, making it one of metro Atlanta’s major employment centers.
The Gwinnett Village team works to increase commercial values, promote economic development and enhance the quality of life for those that live work and/or play in The Village.
Gwinnett Village CID Goals:
- Enhance Public Safety
- Develop Community Identity
- Improve Mobility for All Modes of Transport
- Encourage Quality Redevelopment
- Maximize Property Owner Investment
Gwinnett Village is the gateway between Metro Atlanta and its largest suburban county of Gwinnett. The CID sits astride Interstate 85, bordered by Buford Highway, Beaver Ruin Road, Britt Road and the DeKalb County line.

These are exciting times in Gwinnett Village – the renaissance has begun!
As executive director, it’s especially thrilling to watch the changes taking place from a front row seat. The board of directors and staff strives every day to improve our District and move closer to realizing its potential as the “land of opportunity” – the ideal location for the next urban corridor in the metro region. And, we take our motto to heart:
Vision. Leadership. Progress.
We are guiding the vision for Gwinnett Village and are encouraged by the initial success:
- Crime has decreased significantly the first six years and we’re working with the Gwinnett and City of Norcross Police Department to maintain that momentum
- Traffic congestion is a top concern for those who live, work and play in the Village, and we have maintained constant dialog with regional transportation partners to find workable, cost-effective solutions
- Our sense of community pride and unity is continuing to grow
All of these are important steps to reach our ultimate goal: To increase the value and demand for office, retail and industrial space in the area – and in turn improve the quality of life work and/or live in The Village.
