Sure glad I don't live in Gwinnett.  There are no amateur tower
regulations in Cherokee county!  That is one reason I chose to live

For Gwinnett county, there's a protocol for erecting towers. For  
towers under 50 feet, you only need a building permit. For those 50  
to 70 feet, you need to file a manufacturer engineering drawing and  
do a couple of other things to get the permit. Above 70 feet, you  
need to stamped engineering drawings and do a couple more things.  
Above 110 feet, you've got to post notices and hold meetings and stuff.

Each subdivision has its own restrictive covenants. Some of the more  
recently built ones may have prohibitions against antennas. Most  
older ones do not. Check this very carefully before buying.
