Support grows for proposed Sugarloaf Community Improvement District

Interest is mounting among business leaders and property owners for a community improvement district to serve the Sugarloaf Parkway corridor.

The proposed Sugarloaf CID would include as much as five square miles surrounding Sugarloaf Parkway near the Infinite Energy Center and Interstate 85. Owners of commercial real estate within the proposed CID would jointly increase their property taxes to fund infrastructure upgrades and long-range project planning.

CID organizers are interested in projects such as installing gateway landscaping for the I-85 interchange, adding more pedestrian-friendly options and enhancing overall access by improving transportation throughout the corridor.

Property owners in the prospective CID area will meet at 9 a.m. Jan. 28 at the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce’s 1818 Club, 6500 Sugarloaf Parkway in Duluth.
