The Gwinnett Village Community Improvement District works hard to provide an environment that is aesthetically appealing to local residents and businesses. From mowing right-of-way and picking up trash to million dollar landscape installations along I-85, the CID feels that cultivating and maintaining an attractive roadside landscape is critical to building a sense of pride in the community and to driving future investment in the district.

I-85 Ramp Landscaping

One of the main initiatives of the CID in 2007 was the replanting and landscaping of the I-85 interchange ramps at Jimmy Carter Boulevard, Indian Trail, and Beaver Ruin.  This million dollar project has been the kickoff to the aesthetic transformation of the area.

BUFORD HIGHWAY STREETSCAPE

The CID has begun to implement several of the initiatives outlined in the ARC Buford Highway Multi-Modal study.  One of these includes landscaping and sidewalk installation along Buford Highway from the County line into the City of Norcross.  These improvements will not only address much needed pedestrian access to a popular bus route, it will also create a more visually appealing corridor.

Right of Way Maintenance

RIGHT OF WAY MAINTENANCE

One of the first initiatives by the Board of Directors for the CID when it was first formed in 2006 was to take over the maintenance of the ROW shoulders within the district. This included the main corridors in the area along with the three interchange ramps along I-85 at Jimmy Carter Boulevard, Indian Trail, and Beaver Ruin Road. The CID now maintains 85 miles of roadway throughout the district. The streets and ramps are mowed, trimmed, and cleaned once every two weeks to maintain a consistent curb appeal in the area.
