Community ProfileLocated just 14 miles from downtown Atlanta, Georgia, the City of Chamblee is a vibrant urban community with diverse residents and cultural flair. From international cuisine and a budding art scene to affordable living, engaged leadership, and ever-expanding entertainment amenities, it’s no wonder our 7-square-mile city can boast community feel and global appeal.

Once a small rail town incorporated in 1908, the City grew through multiple annexations and is now the fastest growing city in DeKalb County, being home to over 30,000 residents. Our city is bordered by Dunwoody to the northwest, Doraville to the east, and Brookhaven
to the southwest.

The two major interstate highways that outline our city, I-285 to the north and I-85 to the southeast, provide easy access to and from the community. And for commuters, that roadway access is complemented by a MARTA (Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority) rail station, and several MARTA bus stops throughout our city. We are constantly adding to our multi-use walkways and trails, making it easier than ever for pedestrians and cyclists to get around town safely. In addition to being a city of trains and automobiles, we are home to DeKalb Peachtree (PDK) Airport, the state’s second-busiest airport behind Hartsfield Jackson International Airport, which is conveniently 30 minutes away.

With all the fun that residents, visitors, and staff can enjoy, we have nine parks featuring playgrounds, athletic fields, picnic areas, and walking trails. Keswick Park offers a beautiful old-growth forest to explore, Arrow Creek Park includes outdoor fitness equipment, and Dresden Park will soon be the location of our newest community building.

We also have fun indoors, including options like the two-story Urban Art Collective housing three dozen artist studios, a virtual golf experience at Atlanta Golf and Social, and sip-and-soap or craft making options at Buff City Soap and AR Workshop . Our city is also home to Atlanta’s Chinatown Mall and its Maomi Bookstore, the Southeast’s only Chinese bookstore; and Plaza Fiesta, a Latin-focused retail center that attracts 4.4 million visitors annually. For the foodies, our restaurants along the Buford Highway Cultural Corridor and destinations like Atlanta/Asian fusion brewpub Hopstix, Malaysian restaurant Food Terminal, and the upscale Southbound are sure to please. 

Our community also comes together throughout the year for popular events like the Atlanta United Watch Party, Chamblee Summer Concert Series, Taste of Chamblee, and Holiday Hoopla.

Government StructureThe City of Chamblee utilizes the mayor and council-city manager form of government. Divided into four districts, our council is comprised of a mayor, four council members, and one at-large council member.  Council members who are elected for the three districts must live in the district in which they represent, but all five council members are elected by a city-wide vote.

Our council enacts ordinances, establishes policy, adopts the annual budget, and establishes the annual tax rate. The implementation of policies set forth by Council, overseeing of all city employees, and management of day-to-day operations are the responsibilities of our City Manager.
