The Norcross Downtown Development Authority is seeking a developer for 16 parcels around Lillian Webb Park.

After years of planning, the DDA is ready to take the next step, building a 'showplace' around the park.

The 6.8 acre +- redevelopment site around Norcross' beloved Lillian Webb Park could eventually feature living units and 2 parking garages-shared by residents, new businesses, and shoppers. Retail and much-needed office space are desired within the mixed-use area.

An included map (photo) shows the parcels.

The development partnership of the DDA, City and citizens will bring many exciting opportunities to our new urban center.

Interested developers will have until September 2, to submit an overall plan, conceptual drawings, their organizational structure, etc., to the Downtown Development Authority Selection Committee.

Upon 2+ months of review, interviews and evaluation, the Committee will select the developer most likely to build what the citizens and council have been planning for years-by incorporating dozens of studies, plans, and data.

From there, it is important to obtain citizen input in addition to our public meetings and hearings. Generally, the procedure for finalization of the Plans would be:

1. DDA approval of conceptual Plan/public hearing
2. Community Development approval
3. Planning and Zoning approval/public hearing
4. ARB approval/public hearing
5. 1-2 additional community meetings (may be mandated by the Downtown Development Authority)/public hearing(s)
6. Community Development’s collection of all approvals for presentation to Council
7. City Council approval/public hearing

This is just an overview.


Developers, citizens, and businesses interested in the development proposal and guidelines may find the Plan through:
