Buford Highway Corridor Area Rezoning

Update: The rezoning was approved by the Doraville City Council on November 18, 2020.

The City of Doraville has rezoned properties along and near the Buford Highway Corridor from the existing, predominately commercial zoning districts to the T-5 (Urban Center) district in the Livable Communities Code (LCC).

The rezoning of this corridor implemented recommendations from the Doraville 2017-2037 Comprehensive Plan and Buford Highway (BuHi) LCI Study which envision the transformation of the corridor as properties are redeveloped. Both plans were completed with extensive input and support from residents, business owners, and other community stakeholders. The rezoning adds the opportunity for new multi-family residential development, while maintaining and encouraging  an increase in the number of our culturally diverse businesses.  The regulations include urban design requirements that promote a pedestrian-oriented, walkable built environment.
