GWINNETT PARKS AND RECREATION TO HOLD MEETINGS FOR THE PIEDMONT PATHWAY STUDY
(Lawrenceville, Ga., Feb. 07, 2023) – Gwinnett County leaders want the public’s feedback on the development of a trail that will ultimately connect several counties.
The 2023 Piedmont Pathway Study explores how the trail can be built and its impact on the environment. As part of the Core Trail system and the Gwinnett Countywide Trails Master Plan, the 28-mile, cross-county trail is designed to provide multiple social, economic, and environmentally sustainable benefits.
“Input from our residents is critical in shaping this process as we move forward,” said Project Administration Division Director Glenn Boorman. “We want to encourage everyone to participate and look forward to hearing different perspectives.”
The County will use the Piedmont Pathway to address connectivity needs in Gwinnett and provide alternate modes of transportation for residents and visitors. The trail will also increase access to recreation and greenspace and enhance connectivity to Gwinnett’s neighboring counties — DeKalb, Fulton and Barrow.
Community input meetings are scheduled from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on the following dates:
- Thurs., Feb. 9 at Rhodes Jordan Park Community Recreation Center in Lawrenceville
- Mon., Feb. 13 at Dacula Park Activity Building in Dacula
- Thurs., Feb. 16 at Best Friend Park Gym in Norcross
If unable to attend an input meeting, residents may visit GwinnettCounty.com/PathwayStudy to take the online survey.
