The Multi-Modal Transportation Plan
The Chamblee Mobility Plan is a comprehensive transportation plan that will set policy direction and make project recommendations for the City of Chamblee over the next 20 years. The City has led this plan to help unify the recommendations of several small-area plans and studies over the last decade, as well as giving a broader mobility context to the forward-looking efforts the City is currently undertaking, such as planning for the Atlanta region’s first self-driving vehicle service.
At the outset of 2019, the plan process is generally at its midpoint. The study team has completed a review of existing conditions and has a broad understanding of Chamblee’s mobility needs, and is beginning the process of defining its recommendations for the City to follow. These will include both capital projects—physical changes to our streets and transportation network—as well as policy changes that change the way the City approaches transportation.
With the DeKalb County T-SPLOST and other funding sources complementing what local resources the City uses on its transportation system, it is important to have a framework like the Mobility Plan so that ongoing transportation decisions help to complete the transportation network to reflect Chamblee’s current needs. At the same time, though, this plan is embracing new transportation options, which are developing at a rapid pace, and will help to prepare the city for what is likely to be a different transportation reality in the future.
The plan has already undertaken several public outreach efforts, including a survey that is still open. We encourage the Chamblee community to participate in this plan, as it is designed to reflect YOUR community’s transportation needs and priorities. We expect to have the plan complete in the spring, so please get involved! Give us your thoughts: Mobility Plan Feedback
The community survey is open until January 31st. Take the survey to share your thoughts on transportation issues in Chamblee and be entered for a chance to win one of multiple $50 cards.

The Rail Trail Phase 3 Extension Livable Centers Initiative (LCI)
In February of 2018, the city was awarded an $80,000 Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) grant from the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) to fund a new planning study to explore possibilities to further extend the city's Rail Trail through Downtown Chamblee.
This new grant will lead to a concept plan for Phase 3 of the rail trail, which will extend the trail eastward from Chamblee Dunwoody Way through the new Town Center project to Ingersoll Rand Drive. The study will also explore possible locations for the rail trail to cross the MARTA tracks to the south of Downtown and extend to New Peachtree Road, as well as to potentially connect with new mixed-use development at the former GM site in Doraville.
The city is in the process of meeting with property owners along the conceptual routes. As we move into the design and recommendations phase of the project, a draft existing conditions document will be released to the public for review. The results of public comment will inform the final recommendations.
