Signage and Way-finding Master Plan
Partnering with the Gwinnett DOT, the Gwinnett Place CID has developed a multi-year signage and way-finding master plan to provide directional assistance and branding elements to roadways in the district. The elements are designed to create excitement and announce to visitors that they have arrived in Gwinnett County’s Central Business District with unified gateway monuments, illuminated street name signs and banners.
Funding comes from previously received grants from the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners for plan development, combined with Gwinnett Place CID funds for implementation.
Signage ranged from smaller street signage identities to larger “gateway monuments.” Phase three of the master plan implementation is complete, including the construction of 10 vehicular directional signs along and around Pleasant Hill Road, four additional secondary gateway monuments along Steve Reynolds Boulevard, Old Norcross Road and Satellite Boulevard, 15 illuminated street signs attached to existing traffic signal mast arms, 17 branding medallions at six intersections in the Gwinnett Place CID, and “Welcome” banners along Crestwood Parkway, Shackleford Road, Breckinridge Boulevard, Market Street and Old Norcross Road.

Continuous Landscape Maintenance and Trash Removal Program
The Gwinnett Place CID maintains the appearance of 10 miles of roadways along the I-85 interchanges at Pleasant Hill Road and Steve Reynolds Boulevard. Landscape crews are funded by Gwinnett Place CID, and in 2017, crews removed 1,074 illegally placed signs from area roadways and 43.11 tons (that is equivalent to more than 6 elephants) of trash. The CID had repaired 136 reported street/shopping center lights and traffic signals alog with 51 damaged street name signs.
I-85 Interchange Landscape Improvements
The Gwinnett Place CID has implemented and continues to maintain its I-85 interchange Beautification Master Plan to landscape the Pleasant Hill Road and Steve Reynolds Boulevard interstate access ramps. These access ramps act as a “front door” into the greater Gwinnett Place area and showcase that Gwinnett Place is welcoming for those visiting and working in the heavily traveled area.
