Your DeKalb, Your Plan
A guide for future economic development in DeKalb County, GA
The Decide DeKalb Development Authority is the primary entity for promoting economic development and job creation in the county. In 2013, the County completed an Economic Development Strategic Plan that aimed to improve its business climate, to revitalize commercial corridors and employment centers, and to enhance DeKalb's quality of place.
As the original plan was developed with a five-year time horizon in mind, it's time for a new, updated plan that can capture the growth, changes, and new opportunities that have emerged in DeKalb County since.
