Camp Creek Greenway

Greenway work to begin soon

Construction will begin within the next few weeks on Camp Creek Greenway, between Velva Court and Rockbridge Road. The city will notify the public of temporary closure dates via digital signs at the Greenway, at, and on social media. Follow @CampCreekGreenway on Facebook. 

Council awarded a contractor bid for up to $719,000. Gwinnett County will contribute more than $500,000 to the project. This SPLOST project replaces the deteriorating, 988-foot wooden boardwalk with a long-lasting, low-maintenance, pre-cast concrete called PermaTrak. Vote: 4-0.

Council also approved the purchase of the PermaTrak components in the amount of $395,658. This will be the largest installation of PermaTrak in the Southeast. The city installed another PermaTrak bridge on the Greenway in September 2015. Vote: 4-0. 

New multi-use trail coming to US 29

Thanks to a Georgia Department of Transportation grant, the city will build a multi-use path and pedestrian bridge on US 29 from Killian Hill Road to Postal Way. The Jackson Creek Trail, which was designed in partnership with the Lilburn Community Improvement District, is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2019. Total cost is expected to be $875,000, with the grant covering up to $700,000 and the city contributing $175,000 in SPLOST funds. Vote: 4-0.

Lilburn welcomes paint-and-sip

The City of Lilburn now allows alcohol consumption at art shops and salons, following an alcohol ordinance amendment approved by Council on Monday. The new alcohol license was added in response to the growing trend of "paint and sip" businesses. The license applies to businesses located in the Town Center Overlay (downtown) and the US 29 Corridor Overlay zoning districts. Vote: 4-0. 

Other Business

  • Council approved a change in zoning conditions to property located at 145 Arcado Road to allow outside storage behind an existing commercial building. The conditions protect the adjacent property owners, including a privacy fence and additional landscaping. Vote: 4-0. 
  • A beer and wine license was approved for a new convenience store at 732 Harbins Road. Vote: 4-0.
  • City Councilman Eddie Price will replace Norman Nash on the Lilburn Community Improvement District Board. Vote: 3-0 (Eddie Price abstained).
