Development Advisory Committee

On February 20, 2018, the Board of Commissioners approved an amended ordinance to reestablish a Development Advisory Committee whose goal is to increase community engagement, restructure, and provide an opportunity for a committee that is innovative with respect to ideas for revitalization, redevelopment and sustainable growth. The Committee consists of 19 members appointed by the Board of Commissioners. 

  • Members serve the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners and Gwinnett County for such duration as said Board may desire
  • The members of the Development Advisory Committee shall elect a Chairman, Vice Chairman, and other officers as the Committee may desire for terms determined by the Committee from their membership
Members serve at the Pleasure of the Board.
