The Lilburn Downtown Development Authority (DDA) is a seven-member board of Directors appointed by the Lilburn City Council to serve as advocates and advisors to the Mayor and Council on issues related to economic growth and development in downtown Lilburn. The Lilburn DDA is an active partner in the city’s revitalization and works to assure the long-term stability of Old Town Lilburn by maintaining the small town character of the district and supporting values that assure Lilburn is a great place to live, work, play, invest and do business.
The Old Town Lilburn neighborhood is currently experiencing unparalleled growth, including high end residential developments, mixed use projects on Main Street for new retail and restaurants, and a retirement community across from City Hall and the Library. There are new detached homes being built and older homes being renovated throughout Old Town.
Old Town offers residents a lifestyle of walkability to the park, restaurants, retail shops, a first rate library, and a concert venue. The small town charm is further supported by close proximity to the city of Atlanta (just 18 miles to downtown), and very successful public schools in the Parkview high school cluster, as well as multiple successful private schools.
Downtown Design Considerations
In the summer of 2019, the City of Lilburn was one of only 2 Georgia cities that was selected to participate in the Georgia Downtown Renaissance Partnership offered by UGA’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government. A Renaissance fellow doing graduate work in Landscape Architecture at UGA was paired with the City of Lilburn to create conceptual renderings for possible downtown revitalization efforts. These design considerations provide vision and visuals for possible future development.
