Sugar Hill invites the community to attend “Closing the Gaps: A Discussion on Sugar Hill’s City Limits” 7 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 19 at City Hall, 5039 W. Broad St. The discussion will be centered around Sugar Hill’s existing city limits and steps the city feels may be necessary to expand and include area residents in city boundaries.

Legend claims the city was named after a large shipment of sugar spilled. “The hill where the sugar spilled” became “the sugar hill.” In 1939 the Town of Sugar Hill was officially established. The town was renamed the City of Sugar Hill in 1975 and is now the fourth largest of 16 cities in Gwinnett. Sugar Hill’s population currently includes about 21,000 residents.
