Help shape the future of the North Druid Hills Corridor
North Druid Hills Corridor Transformation Study

DeKalb County is taking proactive steps to transform the North Druid Hills Corridor into a more efficient and safer space for all its users. Recognizing the corridor's significance as a hub for businesses, residents, and commuters, the county has initiated the North Druid Hills Corridor Scoping Study. This study aims to identify and develop multimodal transportation solutions that cater to the diverse needs of the community. With a focus on improving traffic operations, ensuring safety, and addressing congestion issues, the study will provide a roadmap for modernizing the North Druid Hills Rd/Valley Brook Rd area.

The community's voice is crucial in shaping the future of the corridor. To this end, DeKalb County is meeting on Thursday, September 14, 2023, from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM in Milligan Hall at Clairmont Presbyterian Church. This is an excellent opportunity for residents to review draft recommendations and engage in one-on-one discussions with the study team. Additionally, online engagement will commence on September 15th at Your insights and feedback are invaluable, and we encourage everyone to participate and help shape the future of the North Druid Hills Corridor.
The North Druid Hills/Valley Brook Road Corridor is a vibrant mix of neighborhoods, schools, restaurants, and major shopping centers. The study area extends from Briarcliff Road to E. Ponce de Leon Avenue
Proposed Changes to Facebook Page
More Neighborhood Chat and Less Spam!
In an effort to make our Clairmont Heights Facebook page more interactive, safe and free from duct cleaning spam posts, we've decided to change it to a closed group (following on the heels of Medlock Park). This shift should occur in the next 1-2 weeks, and we'll provide notice on the page when we do.
This is in large part in response to feedback from neighbors, so please do reach out with any comments, questions or concerns about this!
