Due to technical difficulties, the July 25th Public Art Commission Meeting will not be recorded or livestreamed. We are working on resolving this issue. We strongly encourage online viewers to attend the meeting in-person. We will also post a recap of the meeting on our social media platforms the following day. Thank you for your cooperation and patience.

Plan Your Neighborhood: Dresden Park

What are we doing? 
The Planning and Development Department is creating a small area plan for the Shallowford Road/Dresden Drive/Plaster Road area of the City. The goal of the plan is to address the current and future needs of the community and we need YOUR help to do this! We believe YOU can play a key role in being a voice for change to represent the community!

What is a Small Area Plan?
A small area plan is a “mini-master plan” that takes recommendations based on input from the community to define and guide the future of the area.  
Who should be involved?
If you live, work, or play in Chamblee and specifically the study area we want to hear from you! 

Where is this coming from? 
The City’s Comprehensive Plan identified this area, and six others, to create a great neighborhood. The six areas were determined to be sites in need of direction and were selected to undergo a Small Area Plan process. Check out the Comprehensive Plan here
