Doraville, GA, January 27, 2016 – The Post Reports – The City of Doraville is embarking upon the important process of updating its Comprehensive Plan, a policy document that outlines the long-range vision for Doraville’s future and helps shape rezoning decisions and other strategic activities and decisions by the city. This plan will serve as a blueprint for the future growth and development of Doraville.
City officials would like to invite community members to the Doraville Future Workshop, the first of several engagement opportunities for Design Doraville, the process of updating the city’s plan:
- 1st Meeting Date: Tuesday, February 9th from 6 to 8 p.m.
- Location: The Salvation Army
- Atlanta International Corps, 3771 Central Avenue, Doraville, GA 30340
Parking is available on a surface parking lot on the Salvation Army campus. This location is less than a quarter mile from the Doraville MARTA Station and is also served by MARTA Bus Route 124 (Pleasantdale Road). It is one block away from MARTA Bus Route 39 (Buford Highway).
This interactive community visioning workshop will help set the framework for the plan update by gathering input on community goals. The workshop will also serve as an opportunity to educate the community about the role of the Comprehensive Plan in the city’s long-term planning and day-to-day activities. A primary question for discussion will be: “What makes Doraville stand out?”
Community involvement is key in ensuring the plan update truly captures the spirit and desire of the various voices that represent Doraville. Residents, business owners, service organizations, and other stakeholders are urged to attend the visioning workshop to learn more about the comprehensive planning process and to provide input.
All are welcome and encouraged to attend this interactive and informative workshop. A Spanish interpreter will be present during the workshop to help facilitate discussion.
