Sugarloaf Community Improvement District is focused on improving your community and protecting your investments
Sugarloaf CID is a self-taxing district that leverages property tax dollars to make improvements in our area. Property owners who are members have the opportunity to voice their opinions, while the CID works on their behalf for specific initiatives to increase connectivity, ensure a secure district, promote a more attractive environment to live work and play, while ultimately, preventing declining property values. Once aligned with a central goal, we can focus on positioning businesses for success.
We understand what it’s like to identify a need and not feel like your voice is being heard. We serve as advocates with your business’ return on investment as our priority. We’ll go to bat for your needs and work in partnership with county, regional and state agencies to make advancements that help the whole community.

Together, we will work to make our district one of the best places to do business in Gwinnett. Key issues members of our CID are focusing on include:
- Increasing connectivity throughout the area with the expansion of walking trails, improvements to traffic flow and public transportation options in the area
- Monitoring and enhancing security resources so visitors and residents feel safe in their community
- Fostering a more attractive district through beautification, expansion of entertainment areas, and by promoting a sense of place and pride
