The City of Doraville is working in conjunction with Stantec to develop a citywide comprehensive mobility plan. The plan will guide the City’s transportation investments over the next 10-20 years, and create a list of projects that address local and regional mobility issues. The mobility plan is undertaken in partnership with the Chamblee Doraville Community Improvement District (CDCID), which is developing its own mobility plan along the major commercial corridors in Doraville and Chamblee. Combined, the two efforts give the Cities a list of capital projects and programs to implement independently or in partnership with other agencies, especially CDCID and the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT).
The Plan seeks to accomplish the following:
- Understand transportation network gaps for all modes (pedestrian, bicycle, vehicle, and transit)
- Create multimodal facilities that better connect the community to regional transportation networks
- Prioritize mobility options that improve accessibility to neighborhoods, parks, and community facilities
- Propose capital projects that support future development projects, such as Assembly Yards
- Use the recommendations from the CDCID Mobility Plan to prioritize capital improvements
November 19 Virtual Public Meeting
The City and Stantec hosted a second public meeting on November 19, 2020. During this meeting, the project team reviewed key findings from the existing conditions report and public outreach efforts, as well as presenting a preliminary draft of the proposed project list. Participants had the opportunity to provide comments on the initial list, and help shape the future of all transportation networks in Doraville.
September 10 Virtual Public Meeting
The first event was held September 10th and took the form of a virtual “open house”, where participants learned about the project, existing conditions, and provided input on topics such as safety, access, and the future of mobility. You can still get engaged via the survey and map below and also view the video and presentation from the September 10th meeting.
