I would create a true community center. This center would be unlike any currently in the Atlanta area and would provide a hub for arts and other civic organizations in the area. Think a large theatre space for performances, smaller performance spaces and rehearsal spaces to act as an incubator for new and innovative projects in all disciplines. In addition, some of the smaller store spaces could be used as affordable space for artists of all disciplines. It would include space for arts education. The most important part would be to make it affordable for smaller groups so that these groups could then access the support that would allow them to grow and increase their capacity to contribute to the economic development of the area, and make Gwinnett County truly an arts destination. In addition, having a variety of spaces that are truly accessible and affordable to bring the entire community together would make celebrating the awesome diversity that we have in Gwinnett County easier. We need to get organizations involved that are leading the way in the areas of equity from audience to leadership, diversity of programming that tells the stories of all that live in our community, and inclusion of everyone in the community by creating a place for each unique voice.

A multipurpose facility for community events and space for reasonably priced event rental space. Include some green space - and a focus on local businesses and community outreach.

I'd love to see an arts center, one that the community and community organizations can actually afford. It would also be a good way to show how Gwinnett/Duluth supports the arts, not just says so.

Good afternoon My name is Karla and I'm a resident of Gwinnett County. I heard there was discussion about what to do with the old mall. I think it's time to revisit extending Marta to Pleasent Hill. It would be a perfect area for residents to ride into the city, lots of parking, and like Penn Station in New York the option to put up shops is there. I have grown up knowing that mall and would love it to be put to good use. Hope there can be a solution soon.
