Gwinnett Place CID re-elects two board members, releases annual report

The Gwinnett Place Community Improvement District, a self-taxing district that uses additional property taxes to accelerate infrastructure improvements, security enhancements and economic development in the Gwinnett Place area, recently re-elected two board members.

Trey Ragsdale and Ben Yorker will return to serve three-year terms. They join five other board members working to enhance the Gwinnett Place area through future improvement projects and by engaging more property owners to participate in the overall redevelopment efforts in the district. Ragsdale is manager of Government and Community Relations for Kaiser Permanente in Georgia, and Yorker is director of development for Northwood Ravin’s Charlotte office.

“We have enjoyed having Trey and Ben on our board and are happy to see them re-elected,” said Leo Wiener, chairman of the CID Board of Directors and president of Ackerman Retail. “Trey has been with us for almost two years and is truly a dedicated board member who is always seeking new ways to improve our district. Ben has been with the board since November 2018, but his involvement and fresh ideas have been a strong addition to the team.”

In addition to the re-election, the Gwinnett Place CID board of directors released its 2018 annual report. View the report:
