Join The Chamblee Doraville CID

More than 93 commercial property owners participate in the Chamblee Doraville CID. With additional partners, we can implement the physical community improvements that will ensure the long-term success of our thriving commercial district.

Why Join?

CIDs Provide a Powerful Tool for Your Property to Compete 
CIDs help you compete for tenants, visitors, and investments in metro Atlanta. Thousands of similar commercial owners in 30 different communities around the state already participate in CIDs. A CID – with representation from ALL of the commercial properties – is a powerful advocate for your needs.

More Participating Owners Means More Gets Done
The more voices and funds we pool, the more we can leverage and reinvest back into the community’s infrastructure. Your participation counts!

Your Money Works for You
CID assessment expenditures are restricted to the district; whatever is collected within the district, goes towards projects and programs important to the district.

The CID is a mechanism by the commercial owners, for the commercial owners. Funds are directly managed by the CID board of directors who are local commercial property owners just like you. The board consists of eight local property owners. The board determines the programs and projects as well as the specific assessment each year.

Commercial property owners who do not participate in the CID...


CIDs are funded through self-imposed ad valorem real estate taxes on commercial properties. This is not a sales tax or a residential tax and there is a limit on how much may be collected.

In DeKalb County, the maximum allowable rate is 5 mills. This is the millage rate adopted by the Chamblee Doraville CID board of directors, although the board determines that amount each year. It amounts to $5 per $1,000 of assessed property value. The calculation is based on the assessed value of the eligible commercial property and not the appraised value.


  • Property appraised at $500,000 
  • Property assessed at $200,000 (or 40% of appraised value)
  • $1,000 added to county tax bill for the CID ($200,000 x .005)
  • Amount can be passed through
