In the spring of 2015, a group of researchers from Georgia Tech’s School of City and Regional Planning created a studio project to collect information about the immigrant populations living and doing business in the city of Norcross, Georgia, as well as the unincorporated parts of the Gwinnett Village Community Improvement District (CID). The goal of the studio was to provide the city of Norcross and the Gwinnett Village CID with two sets of information: one, a portrait of the overall immigrant community—how and where people lived; where they worked; where they played, argued, shopped, and prayed—and two, what this community would need in order to become more engaged in the area’s civic and economic life.
