[ARCHIVED] Chamblee and Other Cities Come Together to Form Peachtree Gateway Partnership

Government and business leaders in the cities of Brookhaven, Chamblee, Doraville and Dunwoody have formed the Peachtree Gateway Partnership, an effort to make this already thriving part of metro Atlanta an even better place to live, work and play.

Government and business leaders in the cities of Brookhaven, Chamblee, Doraville and Dunwoody have formed the Peachtree Gateway Partnership, an effort to make this already thriving part of metro Atlanta an even better place to live, work and play.

The area is home to DeKalb Peachtree airport, three MARTA rail stations, the vacant GM site that is ready for redevelopment, and one of the region’s largest interstate interchanges. These assets, along with many others, have the Partnership excited about what the future holds as they take steps to create a nonprofit entity.

The Peachtree Gateway Partnership is working to create a strategic plan that sets priorities for improving and promoting the area. That plan may include branding and quality of life improvements such as a connected trail network.

The Peachtree Gateway Partnership was launched by Brookhaven Mayor John Ernst, Chamblee Mayor Eric Clarkson, Doraville Mayor Donna Pittman and Dunwoody Mayor Denis Shortal, with assistance from the Atlanta Regional Commission. The mayors have been joined by leaders of the local business community, Peachtree-DeKalb Airport and others.

“So many neighboring communities around the Atlanta region are working together for the good of their larger areas,” said Mayor Clarkson, who was selected to serve as chair of the Partnership. “We realized that we could be more successful if we join forces to promote the many strengths and assets we share.”
