The DeKalb Chamber of Commerce advocates for businesses primarily at the local level and as needed at the state and federal levels. The Chamber uses the following four measurements in considering positions on issues:
We believe in:
- Maintaining and growing opportunities for existing and future DeKalb County businesses
- Reducing the cost of doing business
- Managing growth and supporting infrastructure improvements so that the marketability of the area is maintained and improved
- Supporting policy that builds, attracts and retains a trained and trainable workforce
As it relates to the recent Tax Allocation District (TAD) proposal at the former GM Doraville Plant, the Chamber believes this initiative meets our four measurement requirements and ha
s worked hard to bring the principal parties together to discuss the overall project.
he goal has always been to educate all parties so that each can make informed decisions about the future of this project. While we will continue to make the Chamber available to facilitate discussions, we recognize that it is up to the key stakeholders to make sound decisions for the communities and businesses that have entrusted them to lead their respective organizations.
