Doraville, GA, April 4, 2016 – The Post Reports – The City of Doraville is working through the important process of updating its Comprehensive Plan, a policy document that outlines the long-range vision for Doraville’s future and helps inform rezoning decisions and other strategic activities by the city. This plan will serve as a blueprint for the future growth and development of Doraville.
The City of Doraville is encouraging the community to participate in the Design Doraville Action Planning Charrette series. As the second of a two-part series, the charrette will build upon the input collected at the March 28th Healthy and Vibrant Community Charrette, where stakeholders discussed the key priorities for furthering a strong Doraville community and how that impacts the Comprehensive Plan for the city.
On April 13th, attendees will be engaged in activities and discussions with other residents, business owners, planners, and other community stakeholders. The focus will be on developing an Action Plan that both identifies strategies for implementation and visualizes how action items will lead to achieving community goals. “Group discussions will include connecting and bringing us together as ONE community, enhancing our policies and ordinances, and inviting the world to Doraville – furthering our unique role in the region,” says the City.
Charrette Part II: Action Planning Charrette, Wednesday, April 13 from 6 to 8 p.m.
