ARC allocates $280,000 to study Jimmy Carter Blvd’s enhancement

The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) has allocated $280,000 from its million-dollar budget to fund a comprehensive study aimed at enhancing safety, beautification, and transportation infrastructure along Jimmy Carter Boulevard in the Gateway85 Community Improvement District (CID). Gwinnett County will contribute an additional $120,000 towards the endeavor.

“We are thrilled to receive this grant from the Atlanta Regional Commission and Gwinnett County to undertake this transformative endeavor,” said Emory Morsberger, Executive Director of Gateway85 CID. “This study represents a pivotal step towards building a sense of place and community for residents, businesses, and visitors within our district.”

With more than 3,000 businesses, employing 47,000 people, Gateway85 CID’s members represent 16% of Gwinnett County’s workforce. By leveraging the expertise and resources of ARC and Gwinnett County, the study aims to identify innovative solutions to enhance the economic impact of Gateway85 CID, which is currently $16.6 billion.

The findings and recommendations of the study are expected to serve as a roadmap for future development and investment within Gateway85 CID, ultimately enriching the quality of life for all stakeholders and community members.

Carolyn Bourdeaux, the former Georgia Congresswoman who worked with Gwinnett County and the Atlanta Regional Commission on this grant said, “I deeply appreciate the regional partnership to invest in the Gateway85 Community. This LCI grant will help lay the foundation to foster sustainable growth and economic development in one of the most diverse but also high-needs communities in the metro area.”
