Let's Imagine What's Next!

The City of Norcross is dreaming big about its future. We have updated our Comprehensive Plan and established a new Unified Development Ordinance as a joint effort, setting up a strong vision for the future and the policy and regulatory tools to make sure we’re on track to get there.

The 2040 Comprehensive Plan has been adopted!

Mayor and Council adopted Imagine Our Future 2040 on March 4, 2019. See the official documents below.

Buford Highway Master Plan

Buford Highway is one of the most important streets in Norcross. It moves people through our city, is home to thriving businesses, and has become a focus for redevelopment activity with the new Gwinnett County Library and the Brunswick under construction next to Lillian Webb Park. As we've thought about the future of Norcross, many of our community members have imagined Buford Highway shifting from a high speed, regional road to something more like the Main Street of Norcross. 

The City is currently considering a detailed master plan specifically for Buford Highway to address  transportation, design, redevelopment, and other issues. The link below is a presentation that was shared at a joint meeting of the City Council and Downtown Development Authority to discuss priorities related to this potential project. Updates will be posted as they become available.
