The Lilburn Community Partnership, Inc. is committed to fostering a vigorous, secure and community spirit-filled environment in which residents, businesses, community organizations and institutions (public and private) and visitors prosper.
In early 2009, a group of citizens met to discuss what could be done to improve the aging commercial corridors in Lilburn. The result of that meeting formed the Lilburn Community Partnership which eventually formed the 4th Community Improvement District in Gwinnett County in March, 2010. Since then the Lilburn Community Improvement District (CID) has become an independent organization of commercial property owners which focuses on infrastructure improvements and beautification in our commercial corridors. Now that the CID has been formed, there remains additional work to be done. Once again, a group of citizens met to determine what other ways we Lilburnites could improve and sustain revitalization efforts. They determined that the new mission of the LCP was more than focusing only on the commercial corridor. It was time to focus on garnering the positive efforts of Lilburn’s civic organizations, schools, churches, neighborhoods, families, businesses, newcomers and visitors into creating an engaged community where all groups are working together. Come join us and be a part of making your Lilburn truly one of the best places to live, work, shop and play.
