The Johns Creek Convention & Visitors Bureau (JCCVB) is beginning a community engagement process to design a gateway marker near the intersection of Kimball Bridge Road and State Bridge Road.
Three community engagement meetings will be held for the public to provide input on what they would like the gateway marker to say about their community.
The three meetings will be held:
• Tuesday, June 25, 7 p.m. at Park Place at Newtown School (inside Newtown Park), 3125 Old Alabama Road
• Tuesday, July 16 at 7 p.m. at Johns Creek City Hall, Ocee Conference Room (left of front entrance), 11360 Lakefield Dr. Johns Creek, GA 30097
• Thursday, July 25 at 7 p.m. at at Park Place at Newtown School (inside Newtown Park), 3125 Old Alabama Road
Those interested in attending are encouraged to check for any updates on meeting times and locations on the City of Johns Creek website calendar. All meetings will be video recorded and available online following the meeting on the JCCVB website project page
The gateway project is one of four Tourism Product Development (TPD) projects approved by the Johns Creek City Council and implemented by the JCCVB for FY2019.
TPD projects are funded by the hotel/motel tax on overnight stays in Johns Creek hotels and allocated by state law for use on specific capital projects that improve destination appeal to visitors, support visitors' experience, or are used by visitors.
JCCVB is working with Urban Catalyst Lab (UCL), a non-profit organization, and Atlanta artist, William Massey, to lead the community engagement and design process for the gateway marker. Together with Massey, UCL will engage the community in the design from ideation to implementation.
