The Planning and Development Department develops and implements long-range land use plans that will shape the community's future as its residents and stakeholders see fit. These plans are implemented through daily application of the Unified Development Ordinance when processing land use and development applications. The most all-encompassing of these plans is the Comprehensive Plan, sometimes referred to as the "Comp Plan".
Comprehensive plans are used by local governments to guide, manage, and implement quality growth. A community’s comprehensive plan is developed through a public process involving community leaders, major stakeholders, the general public, and elected officials, all of whom make key decisions about the future of the community. The overall goal of the city's Comp Plan is to accommodate growth in a timely, orderly, and efficient arrangement of land uses, public facilities, infrastructure, and services that meet the needs of the residents and businesses of the City of Chamblee.
In early 2019, the City initiated the process of a major update to its Comp Plan. The project, called the One Chamblee Comprehensive Plan Update, will result in a final document that will be presented to the Mayor and City Council for adoption in the 4th quarter of the year.
Please visit the One Chamblee website for more information, and to take the Community Input Survey. In addition to taking the survey you can give us your thoughts: One Chamblee (Comprehensive Plan Update) Feedback.
