Mayor Mike Mason expected to unveil future plans, highlight successes

Mayor Mike Mason will deliver his annual state-of-the-city address on Monday, July 22. The event will be held at the Marriott Hotel, 475 Technology Parkway in Peachtree Corners. A reception with cash bar is scheduled from 6-7 p.m. followed by the mayor’s address at 7 p.m.

Mayor Mason is expected to reveal the plans and vision for the city’s future and point to a number of successes the city has accomplished in the past year. On the list will be the great strides made in the revitalization of Tech Park, the increase in home values and the many infrastructure improvements including a new roundabout, road repaving, the installation of new sidewalks and continued work on the multi-use trails that will eventually wind through the city.

Certainly, on the top of the list of accomplishments, Mayor Mason will point to the great success of the 21-acre Town Center, and the considerable economic impact on the $80 million investment. Since opening in late April, the Town Center has been attracting thousands of residents and guests to the outdoor concerts and numerous family-friendly events that take place on the 2-acre Town Green. The city undertook this large-scale project without adding any additional debt to taxpayers while maintaining a zero-millage rate.

He will, undoubtedly point to one of the city’s most exciting projects – the plans for Curiosity Lab at Peachtree Corners, 1.5-mile intelligent mobility and smart city laboratory which is currently being constructed along Technology Parkway. The 5G enabled autonomous vehicle test track and smart city living lab will be available for both startups and established companies. The lab is expected to draw both new and established technology-savvy businesses to Tech Park.

Mayor Mason will unveil a number of the city’s future projects including the Town Center’s pedestrian bridge, botanical garden and performing arts center. Construction on the bridge, which will connect The Forum to the Town Center, is expected to begin this summer.

All are invited to attend the mayor’s seventh state-of-the-city address to hear more of the vision for the future of Peachtree Corners.

Building Southwest Gwinnett County – Annual Mayors Panel Discussion

Published

on

The Southwest Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce presents a panel discussion of the common issues of the cities that are the Gateway to Gwinnett. This is a great opportunity to ask questions about the issues that affect our community and our businesses. This event is part of the First Friday Breakfast program and it will be held on July 10 from 7:30-9 AM at Atlanta Tech Park.

The mayors of Berkeley Lake, Norcross and Peachtree Corners represent three of Gwinnett’s most diverse cities: one of the biggest cities and one of the smallest cities in population, one of the newest and one of the oldest cities in the county, and as a group, one of the most diverse ethnic populations in the country. Many of our concerns cross the boundaries of these three cities and certainly the economic health of any one impacts the businesses in all three.

Our moderator will be posing pre-submitted questions to each of the mayors and as time permits questions from the audience. Topics will include issues facing each of the cities and common issues facing Southwest Gwinnett County. This is a great opportunity for our audience to be engaged in the direction being taken by the cities in the Southwest Gwinnett Chamber community. 

Please submit questions to this email address: bcoffey@southwestgwinnettchamber.org with the subject “I have a question for the Mayors”.
