City hall/library project moving forward

Changes to Lilburn’s Main Street are just the beginning of the city’s plans for revitalization that include a new city hall and library off Church Street. The L-shaped, brick building will be perched atop a hill that is highly visible from Lawrenceville Highway, effectively bringing Old Town uptown.

The joint project between Lilburn and Gwinnett County includes a two-story building. The new City Hall will have 24,000 square feet, including administrative offices, a large meeting room, and council chambers. The 20,000 plus square foot replacement library will nearly double the size of the existing Lilburn Library. The project is currently out for construction bids due by the end of Feb. for the estimated $11.5 million project funded by SPLOST, the countywide 1% sales tax approved by voters for special projects.
