With July as Parks and Recreation Month, the Chamblee Parks and Recreation Department is celebrating the work of park and recreation professionals who provide services that are vital to a healthy Chamblee. A variety of activities are planned for residents and visitors.
Chamblee launched Citibot last year so residents could report city issues, search the city website for information or send a message to staff via text message.
After careful consultation with the city’s team regarding the health and safety of the community, the City of Chamblee has made the difficult decision to cancel the Chamblee 4th of July Celebration and Fireworks, according to a press release.
The city of Chamblee recently was awarded federal grant funding through the Atlanta Regional Commission’s Transportation Improvement Program to extend the city’s Rail Trai, a multiuse trail for pedestrians and cyclists that currently connects Keswick Park to the Mid-City District.
The city of Chamblee is warning residents property taxes could go up this year due to a change in DeKalb County’s assessments.
With the reopening of businesses and state government, the city of Chamblee released a plan to bring back operations at city facilities:
The city will install plexiglass “cough shields” at all public windows in city facilities that will remain in place until further notice.
More municipalities in metro Atlanta are enacting shelter-in-place or stay-at-home orders for residents.
Chief Thomas was appointed to lead the Chamblee Police Department by the City Manager in October 2018 and approved by the Mayor and Council in November 2018.
