Victoria Smith/Gateway85 Community Improvement District
Gateway85 Community Improvement District is the state’s largest CID and represents more than 550 business owners, accounting for more than $1 billion in commercial property value in Gwinnett County. The district has 3,000 businesses that employ more than 30,000 workers, making it one of metro Atlanta’s most important employment centers.
Gateway85 CID is focused on improving the bottom line of businesses within the district by using funds paid by the property owners in the form of added millage rate. Those funds are then used to update infrastructure like bridges and sidewalks, study mobility and logistics improvements, and enhance security and beautification efforts over its 14-square mile district along the I-85 corridor about one mile north of I-285.
