Want to know more about local government? Chamblee 101 may be for you


If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about local government and how it operates, then Chamblee 101 is for you.

The nine-week program begins in February and is designed to educate residents and business owners on how the city government works, who’s responsible for what and what steps you can take to make a difference. The classes include discussions and interactive activities on topics such as Chamblee’s history, form of government, city services, finance and development.

“I decided to take the Chamblee 101 class because I feel it is important to be educated and involved in things that are near and dear to my heart,” says Sherry Addison, a Huntley Hills resident and 2018 graduate of Chamblee 101. “The city I live in, the people who also live here and the people who provide my family services are all things I’m grateful for. I want to give back as much as I can.”

Classes are every Wednesday at 6 p.m. beginning, Feb. 13 and going through April 10. The kickoff for registered class members and alumni, however, is at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 5 at Hopstix, 3404 Pierce Dr., Chamblee. The graduation ceremony will take place at the City Council meeting April 16.
