FOCUS: Looking back at a decade of progress for Gwinnett’s first CID

By Chuck Warbington | A decade seems like a long time, but in retrospect it feels no more than a blink of an eye. That’s how long the Gwinnett Village Community Investment District (CID) has been working to make southwestern Gwinnett County a better place, and it’s how long I’ve proudly held the position of executive director. The time has come to pass the baton of leadership to the next person, who will no doubt bring fresh ideas and a renewed energy to making a significant, positive impact on this community. As I transition to a new challenge, I have taken time to reflect on the work our CID team has accomplished to date.
