Building Community Strategic Partnerships and the Arts Key Topics in 2020 Vision.
Lawrenceville Mayor David Still shared his vision for the future of Lawrenceville at his first State of the City event at 550 Trackside before a sold out crowd of more than 180 people. Utilizing the “fireside chat” format, Mayor Still and Chamber President Nick Masino, serving as moderator, discussed Lawrenceville’s accomplishments and Mayor Still’s vision for a strong community built on relationships, Fine and Performing Arts Opportunities, higher wage jobs, and quality housing at all levels.
“When people say they live in Lawrenceville, I want it to mean something,” said Still. “Lawrenceville is my hometown and the community where I live. The City Council and I plan to work together to build a strong community through strategic partnerships, higher paying jobs, and quality housing.”
In addition to the 2020 Vision, the G.R.E.A.T. Little Minds Book Exchange presented Book Exchanges in honor of Former Lawrenceville Mayor Judy Jordan Johnson and Gwinnett County Chairman Charlotte Nash. The Book Exchanges, created by local artists, function as public art installations and free book exchanges for early learning children’s books and encourage appreciation for public art in Gwinnett County.
“Continuing the revitalization in our downtown area will also be a priority,” said Still. “Completing our current projects like the College Corridor, the new Performing Arts Center, the Hilton Tapestry Hotel and adjacent parking deck, SouthLawn and City View, the renovations to the Lawrenceville Lawn, and the new School of the Arts at Central Gwinnett High School will be significant. All are scheduled for completion within the next 12-18 months.”
