First Time for Chamblee
 
2015 was the first time Chamblee participated in GA Cities Week. The City worked with a group of active community members to come up with a plan of activities for GA Cities Week. This group involved Chamblee 101 graduates, Recreation Advisory Committee members and representatives from Keep Chamblee Beautiful, the Chamblee Chamber of Commerce and the Arts Chamblee. This year, the City worked with another group of community members to come up with this year's schedule.
