1. Gwinnett County 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 framework for how the County’s residents and other stakeholders want to see it grow and develop over the next 20 years. The following survey is meant to obtain general feedback on residents' opinions regarding the current state of Gwinnett County. The survey is designed to take less than 10 minutes. All responses will remain anonymous and confidential. Thank you in advance for your time.
