Lawrenceville’s downtown district includes breweries, restaurants and the Aurora Theatre, which also serves alcohol. Once the Lawrenceville Lawn’s stage is complete, drinks can also be brought to events and shows that will be held there. Drinks consumed in the downtown area must purchased from businesses within the same boundaries, Sherman said.
Lawrenceville's downtown has been in the midst of a development boom. The Aurora Theatre is undergoing a $31 million expansion, due to be complete in November 2020. A new hotel and parking deck are planned down the street, and SouthLawn is expected to add 600 apartments and 15,000 square feet of retail space. The new open container ordinance is another step towards progress for the city, Sherman said.
“We have a comprehensive plan that is moving the city forward for people who want to come experience what it’s like to live and play in Gwinnett County,” Sherman said.
