Gwinnett 2040 Unified Plan
“The Unified Plan provides a blueprint for the County’s growth and development over the next two decades. Input from residents and other stakeholders was balanced with technical analysis by the experts of demographic information and other data to create a vision of a preferred future for the County,” said Board of Commissioners Commission Chairman Charlotte Nash. “It anticipates future needs and establishes our short-term and long-term goals. The 2040 Unified Plan also ties several other plans into a single, coordinated vision so that everyone is on the same page and moving in the same direction.” For more detailed information go to https://www.gwinnettcounty.com/web/gwinnett/Departments/2040UnifiedPlan

Economic Impact Study done in Carbondale,IL
Economic Impact study done in 2007 on communities near a transfer station. The average impacted area is 1.8 miles from ground zero. The average decline of property value for the first .6 mile area is a minimum of 6% to 8% which equates to $15k to $20k reduction or more. Properties past that point would still be impacted up to $15k. This would mean that there would be a significant drop in value of all properties between the proposed site and Cooper Elementary/McConnell Middle going one way and all the way to Hwy 81 in Walton Co. going the other way. There would still be a drop in values all the way to GA20 and beyond in Loganville/Grayson areas. This would potentially affect properties all the way up to New Hope Road, Tribble Mill Park and Archer High School areas.
