Plan strives to accommodate growth and strengthen communities

(Lawrenceville, Ga., Feb. 20, 2024) – On Tuesday, the Board of Commissioners adopted the 2045 Unified Plan, setting a vision for Gwinnett’s future over the next two decades.

Led by Gwinnett Planning and Development, the plan was developed over an 11-month period using stakeholder and community feedback as a catalyst for its recommendations, tackling key issues related to land use, economic development, housing, transportation, sustainable infrastructure and community resources.

“As Gwinnett continues to experience significant population growth, the adopted 2045 Unified Plan embraces innovative ways to maximize land use and guide future development,” said Chairwoman Nicole Love Hendrickson. “Through thoughtful planning and strategic implementation, this blueprint charts a course for sustainable growth but also lays the groundwork for a vibrant and connected future.”

The 2045 Unified Plan serves as a roadmap for Gwinnett, offering tangible steps to accommodate the county’s projected population growth of more than a half a million residents by 2045. The plan aims to maintain Gwinnett’s high quality of life while fostering intentional and beneficial development.

The plan also includes actionable goals, strategies, priorities, and implementation tools to guide elected officials, County staff, and other community leaders as they work to improve Gwinnett for all its residents.
