Peachtree Corners City Council approves 2033 comprehensive plan

PEACHTREE CORNERS — After almost a year of meetings and public input, Peachtree Corners finally has a comprehensive plan for 2033.

The plan calls for four things over the next 20 years for the city, as put together by Pond and Company:

• Offer a high quality of life for residents;

• Provide a competitive environment for business;

• Create a strong sense of community for all; and

• Accommodate the best opportunities to live, work and stay.

Among the suggestions were that Technology Park needed to be brought into the 21st century with the best infrastructure and revitalized office development.

The community goals are five-fold:

• Build a unified and family-friendly community;

• Celebrate the city’s natural and cultural environment;

• Integrate transportation and accessibility into development decisions;

• Enable re-development and capture high-quality new development; and

• Emerge as the most desirable, advantageous and competitive city in Gwinnett County.

The council also heard a first read of a request to rezone 1.75 acres of property at 500 S. Peachtree St. from C-1 to C-3 in order to allow a garden supply business to store and sell landscaping materials outdoors. A second read and public comment will be held at the Dec. 3 council meeting.

The council also found out that the applicant had withdrawn its request to rezone four pieces of property at Peachtree Corners Circle and Medlock Bridge Road, which would have accommodated a future mixed-use development.
