The beginning of this post was question about the advisory board. It's nice that it has people representing various ethnic groups and civic organizations but what about others who live in the area who would benefit from improvements to the mall area? They should be included on the board.

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.

There is already a poplice precinct in the area. With more actvity in the area crime would go down as crime thrives in araes with little activity (i.e. witnesses).

Develope a multi-modal trasnit center for rail and buses. Additional housing and offices can be developed around it and potentially above it.
