Gwinnett Place CID increases efforts to clean-up district

The Gwinnett Place Community Improvement District (GPCID), along with help from its partners including its property owners, Georgia Power, Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful, Jackson EMC and Gwinnett DOT, work to ensure the district is clean and well-kept for its community members and visitors.

In 2018 GPCID-funded clean-up for the district’s 10 miles of roadway and two I-85 interchanges by removing 1,374 illegal signs (an increase of 300 more signs over 2017), reporting and repairing 203 street lights/shopping center/traffic signal lights (70 more than in 2017), and reporting and repairing 56 damaged street signs in the CID area.

The GPCID was also responsible for collecting 4,940 bags of trash (over 600 bags more than in 2017), the equivalent of 98,800 pounds of trash (14 percent more than 2017) or 49.4 tons of trash.

Since the GPCID began implementing these services in 2007 they have removed 294.5 tons of trash, 15,460 illegal signs from CID roadways, and reported and repaired 1,200 signs/lights.

The district’s commercial business owners tax themselves to keep the area visually appealing, which is designed to help to attract shoppers, new businesses looking to relocate, and developers interested in redevelopment opportunities. Information: www.gwinnettplacecid.com.
