City Hall/Library
On June 9, 2015, the City of Lilburn and Gwinnett County broke ground on the centerpiece of the city’s plans for revitalization: a new City Hall and Library. The L-shaped, brick building will be perched atop a hill at the corner of Church and Main streets and will be highly visible from Lawrenceville Highway. The nostalgic architecture and prominent clock tower will convey the city’s small-town feel, while the state-of-the-art quality of the facility will communicate the type of service residents and businesses can expect to find in Lilburn.

Made possible through the cooperative efforts of the City of Lilburn and Gwinnett County, the two-story City Hall / Library building is unique in that it is a joint project under one roof. The new City Hall will have 24,000 square feet, including administrative offices, a large meeting room, and council chambers. The 20,000 plus square foot replacement library will nearly double the size of the existing Lilburn Library. The building cost is contracted at $11.3 million in special-purpose local-option sales tax (SPLOST) funding, the countywide 1% sales tax approved by voters for special projects.

Main Street Realignment 
The realignment of Main Street sets the stage for future development, starting with the future Lilburn City Hall/Gwinnett County Library. About 22 acres has road frontage on the new alignment, making it a prime spot for economic growth. The reconfigured Main Street, completed in 2015, features a safer, more traditional intersection at Lawrenceville Highway. The two roundabouts allow for smoother traffic flow to Old Town. Also, Church Street was lowered eight feet to improve sight distance and safety. The $3.5-million project is supported by the City of Lilburn, Gwinnett County, the State Road and Tollway Authority, and the Lilburn Community Improvement District.

Main Street Water and Sewer Improvements (Gwinnett County)
During the Main Street Lilburn Water Mains replacement and the Sanitary Sewer extension, Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources replaced water mains on Camp Creek Road/Main Street from Arcado Road to just south of Highway 29, and on several streets in Old Town. Sewer lines were installed on Main Street from Norman Street to First Avenue. At this time, all lines are complete and in service.
Project Fact Sheet

Old Town Sidewalk Projects
Camp Creek Road sidewalks were completed in late 2015. Sidewalk construction is under way on Main Street and Poplar Street in Old Town. The five-foot-wide sidewalks will run along the east side of Poplar Street and along both sides of Main Street. There will be a brick paver strip, decorative lighting, and decorative mailboxes on Main Street, as well. The addition of these sidewalks will provide full connectivity between Lilburn City Park, the Camp Creek Greenway Trail, Old Town shops, and the new city hall-library. Construction should be completed by the first quarter of 2016. The projects totaling approximately $652,000 are funded by SPLOST, the penny sales tax approved by voters for special projects.
