Its been a short seven years since the city was incorporated as Gwinnett County’s 16th city, yet there is little doubt that this young city has been on the move since it was officially founded July 1, 2012.

Mayor Mason is expected to highlight the city’s progress — and offer a look ahead to the future of the county’s largest city.

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”.
