Norcross approves Beaver Ruin Creek greenway master plan

The Norcross City Council approved a concept study Sept. 8 for the Beaver Ruin Creek Greenway. The proposed plan consists of a greenway trail along an existing Georgia power easement and a connecting trail along Beaver Ruin Creek and Mitchell Road.

The proposed plan calls for an extensive evaluation of existing conditions including road crossings, driveway entrances and school crossings as well as watershed impacts.

The city will conduct public meetings and surveys for input on the project. Residents, business owners as well as ARC, GDOT, Gwinnett DOT, Gwinnett County Parks Department, Gwinnett Village CID and Georgia Power will be included in the process.

The study is anticipated to take approximately six months.
