On behalf of the City of Suwanee and our council, let me be among the first to extend a heartfelt welcome to our community! The city prides itself on providing high quality of life for its residents; I sincerely believe that you have selected an outstanding place to work, learn, play, and call home.
Located in Gwinnett County (the second largest county in the state, and one of the fastest-growing counties in the nation), Suwanee is well-known around the region for its distinctive parks, crowd-pleasing events, and high-quality mixed-use developments. The city works hard to retain its charm and sense of neighborliness and to manage growth in smart, innovative ways.
As a lifelong resident, I’m proud of the numerous awards our community's efforts have garnered over the past several years, such as being recognized by Money Magazine as one of the country's best small communities in which to live, and by Kiplinger.com as one of the best communities in which to raise children. Most of all, I’m gratified that our residents and business owners are proud to call Suwanee "home."
One of the greatest things about Suwanee – one of the qualities I love most about it – it its people. People from all over the world come here with unique ideas and experiences, and work together to create shared values and the vision for the community that they have chosen to call home. All that Suwanee has become and all that Suwanee will be is rooted in their talents, dedication, and hard work, and I couldn’t be more proud to serve as their Mayor.
Whether you’re looking for a place to visit, live or build a business, know that you are welcome in Suwanee!
Mayor Jimmy Burnette
