Gwinnett County, Georgia
Suwanee is located in the northwest quadrant of Gwinnett County, near the borders of Fulton and Forsyth counties. Founded in 1818, the County is named for Button Gwinnett, one of three Georgia signers of the Declaration of Independence and the signer whose signature is most valued by collectors.
Much of Suwanee's vibrancy is a reflection of the growth, strength, and dynamism of Gwinnett County. With a current population of 654,000 and projected to grow to 1.2 million by 2025, Gwinnett is one of the healthiest counties economically in the country. The county is one of only 20 throughout the country to receive a AAA designation from all three major credit rating agencies. Nearly 300,000 people are employed by Gwinnett County businesses, which include hundreds of manufacturing and high-tech companies as well as international corporations.
Gwinnett County is governed by a five-member Board of County Commissioners, which meets at 2 p.m. the first and third Tuesdays of each month at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center. Suwanee is represented by District 1 Commissioner Marcia Neaton, whose office can be reached by calling 770/822-7001. Lawrenceville is the county seat.
