Dates, times, and locations are subject to change.
Community Education Session #1
Before our Kick-Off Meeting on April 10th, Jon Tuley with the Atlanta Regional Commission. gave an interesting presentation on why demographics research matters to planning, and how changes to the Atlanta Region’s population over the next few decades could impact Chamblee. You can download the presentation below.
The Kick-Off Meeting on April 10th gave interested Chamblee residents and stakeholders an opportunity to learn about the planning process and give some initial feedback on the city’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. You can download the presentation below.
Planning Workshop #1
The first of two community planning workshops, this workshop gave everyone a chance to review the current comprehensive plan’s vision and goals and give input on how they could be improved to better guide the future, and review current policies and decide what should be prioritized during this planning process.
Community Education Session #2
After everyone had a chance to give input, the second community education session, Market and Economic Realities, was given by Joe Minicozzi from the Asheville-based firm Urban 3. This session presented case studies as to why higher density and mixed use developments are the better strategies to increase the health of a city’s tax base, and highlighted some Chamblee-specific examples.
