Doraville Town Hall Meetings Focus on the GM Assembly Redevelopment – On January 27th, 2023, the City of Doraville held a Town Hall Meeting to discuss the future of the GM Assembly site. The meeting was facilitated by TSW’s Caleb Racicot, who was invited by Mayor Pittman to lead the discussion due to his previous work in the City, including the Livable Centers Initiative Study in 2010 and the newly-adopted Livable Community Code in 2014.
The purpose of the meeting was to provide residents, business owners, and other stakeholders with an opportunity to hear from the development team of Integral/Macauley+Schmit about their plans for the multi-billion dollar redevelopment of the GM Assembly site. The proposed project is set to include several towers, plazas, parks, transit, and more, which will provide a welcomed renaissance for the Doraville area.
During the meeting, attendees were able to ask questions and provide feedback on proposed uses, design, transit, and timeline for the project. This was the first of several opportunities for the community to get involved in the redevelopment process, and future meetings will be announced on the City’s website.
The GM Assembly redevelopment was a key recommendation of the City’s Livable Centers Initiative Study in 2010, which aimed to create a more sustainable and walkable community in Doraville. The newly-adopted Livable Community Code in 2014 was written to remove barriers to its redevelopment. The proposed project aligns with the City’s goals to create a more livable and sustainable community, which will improve the quality of life for residents and attract new businesses to the area.
Overall, the Town Hall Meeting was a successful opportunity for the community to learn more about the proposed redevelopment plans and provide feedback. The City of Doraville is committed to engaging with the community throughout the redevelopment process and ensuring that the project aligns with the City’s vision for a more livable and sustainable community.
