2017: A Success Story in the Making

The 2017 Annual Report offers an overview of what the City of Lilburn accomplished during the past year. Inside are facts and figures about city finances, safety, economic growth, and community accomplishments. Click here to view the 2017 Annual Report.

In 2016, completion of the Lilburn City Hall-Library created a new landmark for the city. Now visitors will remember Lilburn as home to the beautiful, brick building with a clock tower in the roundabout.

Just as we all had hoped, this symbol of progress has attracted investment in the downtown area. Piece by piece, available property is being purchased for the development of new homes and businesses.

Though we’ve tasted a little success, we’re not done yet! The city and its partners are still working hard to enhance our parks and trails, keep neighborhoods safe, improve vehicle and pedestrian transportation, and strengthen the business community. Here is some of what you will see in 2018:

• Construction will temporarily close the city’s Camp Creek Greenway this spring. The result will be a long-lasting boardwalk that no longer floods after a heavy rain. See cityoflilburn.com for closure updates.

• Gwinnett County continues to invest in transportation improvements in Lilburn, such as the addition of sidewalks on Killian Hill Road. The county also converted the former library branch into a new activity building on Hillcrest Road and installed sidewalks, which the city will continue across Indian Trail in 2018.

• The Lilburn Community Improvement District made landscaping improvements on US 29 and has more planned for 2018. You can also thank the CID for the cleaner roadsides on the main corridors.

• The Lilburn Downtown Development Authority is a key partner in economic growth in Old Town and on US 29. In 2017, DDA formed a Georgia Main Street program to support businesses in Old Town.

The City of Lilburn staff and elected officials would like to thank the residents and business owners for your personal investment in the city. We are proud to serve you and look forward to 2018.
