Gwinnett 2040 Unified Plan

The Department of Planning & Development, in conjunction with consulting firm Pond & Company and its team of subconsultants, has begun preliminary work on the County’s 2040 Unified Plan.  The Georgia Department of Community Affairs requires all counties and cities in the state to have a comprehensive plan, which Gwinnett calls a “unified plan.” 

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.  Please see below for other frequently asked questions regarding the development of the plan.

Help us shape the future
We want your feedback on the County's 2040 Unified Plan, which will contemplate how land use, transportation, housing, and economic development can combine and work together in the county. 

Take a short online survey through May 31 to share your perception of Gwinnett and how you think Gwinnett should grow and develop over the next two decades

The 2040 Unified Plan represents an opportunity to pause, and look ahead thoughtfully. The plan will consider and tackle a wide range of issues, community goals, and opportunities primarily in the areas of housing, transportation, economic development, open space, and land use.

You can help by conducting a living room chat with friends and neighbors through May 31 to weigh in on what Gwinnett could look like by 2040.

After the first round of public feedback, consultants will review the results, and draft some proposed polices for a second round of meetings for public input, tentatively set for later in May.
