Honoring Jimmy Carter and Gateway85 CID
May 23 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
On Tuesday, May 23, Gateway85 CID will hold an event to honor President Jimmy Carter and the namesake of our primary artery, Jimmy Carter Boulevard. From 10 – 11:30 a.m. outside of Global Mall, our featured speakers will include former U.N. Ambassador Andrew Young, Jason Carter, Chair of The Carter Center, Gwinnett County Commission Chair Nicole Love Hendrickson, Norcross Mayor Craig Newton, local business leaders and prominent figures involved in the creation of Jimmy Carter Boulevard who will speak on the history of President Jimmy Carter, the boulevard and district, the rise of technology and manufacturing and the incredible international flavors of its booming restaurant and retail scene.
The event kicks off a year-long enhancement program that is underway for Jimmy Carter Boulevard, including a banner program that will highlight President Carter’s contributions, community art classes that will result in a mural within the district, beautification efforts and more.
Immediately following the event, the CID will host an informal luncheon featuring international cuisine from amazing restaurants in the district. We are expecting a great turnout and hope you will attend.
