More than I can remember. Great destination until the Mall of Georgia was opened.

Whatever is done should be not require increased property taxes or SPLOST. Gwinnett taxes are much too high already and the county commission uses every excuse to continue raising them. Don't let this be just another excuse. The property should be developed and maintained from revenue generated on the property (sales, rentals, permits, etc) and not by milking the taxpayers.

I think the entire site should be redeveloped into an amusement park and water park with hotels and upscale restaurants. This would give the citizens of Gwinnett something to do for a "stay-cation" as well as attract tourist to spend there money in Gwinnett. A local SPLOST style tax can be applied to all money spent at the site in order to pay for maintenance and future upgrades.

The mall can become a multi-use center to promote sustainability and agricultural education as well as promote local farming by creating a farmer’s market, utilizing the ample space for sustainable farming techniques such as vertical farming and aquaponics farming, and the installation of food shops (stalls and restaurants) to attract business in a self-sustained environment which utilize local products and those from the vertical farms located in the mall. The vertical farm and food businesses can use a portion of its parking lot and the mall’s roof to place solar arrays to provide a portion of its energy needs. Food scraps from the neighboring restaurants in Gwinnett County and those located within the mall as well as discarded product from the farmer’s market can be used to create compost and energy for electricity and heat similar to The Plant (https://www.plantchicago.org/) in Chicago and others. Market research shows vertical farming industry is expected to grow to a value of $3 billion by 2024 and has created high value companies. The promotion of innovative sustainable farming and local farming in this center along with the accompanying farmer’s market and restaurants provide boost to the economy, education, and sustainability.
