LAWRENCEVILLE -- Local residents could have a say in Lawrenceville's efforts to tie the Georgia Gwinnett College campus to its downtown.
Leaders are inviting the public to an open house at 7 p.m. today to get input on a conceptual master plan for the corridor and possible improvements to Collins Hill/Northdale Road between Ga. Highway 316 and the town Square.
"The open house is a major milestone in the GGC-Downtown Lawrenceville Corridor Study planning process and in taking steps toward improving connections between the growing GGC campus and the city's downtown hub," Mayor Judy Jordan Johnson said in a press release about the event, planned for City Hall.
At the meeting, which is the third of four public events planned for the topic, city staff and professional planners will discuss recommendations for transportation, land use and community design, the release said. Residents can have informal one-on-one discussions with team members. Then comments and suggestions will be recorded and considered for final revisions to the plan.
Officials plan to host a final public hearing prior to the adoption of the plan by the city council, which is expected to come in the fall.
