The City of Chamblee would like your feedback on the draft plans for the Broad Street streetscape. The Downtown Chamblee Town Center is rapidly changing, and this project will ensure that people can move safely and efficiently throughout the City’s Town Center District. The project kicked off with the Town Center Stroll public event and street festival in September 2019, a tactical urbanism-style street festival, in partnership with local businesses, with food trucks, and fun and games for the entire family.
The feedback received from this event will be used to inform and guide the creation of streetscape plans for Broad Street and the section of Peachtree Road in the Town Center area from roughly American Industrial Way to Ingersoll Rand Drive.
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 is called the One Chamblee Comprehensive Plan Update. The draft final document was presented to the Mayor and City Council for a public hearing on November 14th and will be presented for adoption at the regular monthly meeting of the Mayor and City Council on November 19th.
