Chamblee Chamber of Commerce Presentation: Mario Evans, Director of Peachtree Dekalb Airport
On Thursday morning, I had the opportunity to attend a presentation by Mario Evans, who heads up Peachtree Dekalb Airport. He spoke about their plans to improve stormwater retention, make runways safer, and partner with the surrounding communities on the visioning process for their master plan.
One thing that Mr. Evans said that stuck with me: the airport is an economic generator for this part of Dekalb County. The new hangars they are building will be very attractive to businesses (Amazon?) looking to move to Doraville's Assembly.
