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 close to 850,000 and projected to be more than 1 million in 2030, Gwinnett has a reputation for being one of the healthiest counties economically in the country and has maintained a AAA bond rating for many years.

More than 285,000 people are employed by Gwinnett County businesses, which include hundreds of manufacturing and high-tech companies as well as international corporations. Indeed, in 2013, Money magazine ranked Gwinnett County #9 on its list of "where the jobs are."

Gwinnett County is governed by a five-member Board of County Commissioners, which generally meets the first and third Tuesdays of each month, at 10 a.m. for a work session and 2 p.m. for the business session, at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center, 75 Langley Drive in Lawrenceville.
