Business owners, residents discuss sign, noise ordinance at forum - Gwinnett Daily Post

Next Third Tuesday event slated for Aug. 16

By Frank Reddy


Staff with the city of Johns Creek Community Development Department met with residents and business owners Tuesday to discuss variances and new initiatives pertaining to noise and sign ordinances in the city.

Hosted by Johns Creek Advantage, the event — which was held at Masterpiece Mixers on Medlock Bridge Road — sought to educate and answer any questions from those in attendance.

Bethany Lavigno Hountz, economic development manager with Johns Creek Advantage, said it was a good turnout and attendees “learned about details of the sign ordinance … and why certain things were violations.”

Added Hountz: “It was exciting to see so many business owners participating in the discussion and vocalizing what parts of the sign ordinance they feel might be hindering their business needs. Business owners who attended also learned about the comprehensive planning process that the city is about to embark upon and how they could be involved in that process.”

Third Tuesdays are a monthly gathering sponsored by Johns Creek Advantage.

The next event, “Commercial Rent Rate Changes: The Real Deal,” is scheduled for 8 a.m. Aug. 16 at the Johns Creek Arts Center.

“We feel like we have great momentum building … so we are really excited to see how this next event shapes up,” Hountz said. “We have a leading real estate expert and radio talk show host, Cleve Gaddis, as our guest speaker … plus, business owners will have plenty of time at the end to ask any questions they might have.”

According to its website, Johns Creek Advantage is “the economic development arm” for the city of Johns Creek.”

Staff members work with local, regional and state leaders to offer a list of resources in order to “facilitate the success of our current and future businesses.”
