DeKalb County - Interim CEO Lee May

 
Lee May, Interim CEO of DeKalb County GA

DeKalb offers the most even balance of jobs and housing of any metro Atlanta county. Industries find DeKalb’s wide mix of transportation favorable for employees. It is served by MARTA (Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority), four major interstates, numerous truck terminals and good rail sites; DeKalb Peachtree Airport is the second busiest air facility in Georgia and home to most of the region’s corporate aircraft; Hartsfield International Airport is just six miles away from the county line.

DeKalb has positioned itself to be in the forefront of biomedical technology. Within a one-mile stretch of road on “Clifton Corridor” are concentrated some of the Southeast’s greatest biomedical organizations, including the Centers for Disease Control (the only federal agency outside Washington, D.C.), Yerkes Primate Center, Emory University’s Rollins Research Center and the American Cancer Society National Headquarters.

DeKalb’s strong hospitality industry attracted many visitors during the Atlanta 1996 Olympics, along with Olympic venues at Stone Mountain Park.

DeKalb has an international flavor, with the highest concentration of Hispanics and Asians in Georgia, and is one of the largest refugee resettlement locations in the country. The Chamber of Commerce is very involved with its growing international community.

DeKalb’s educational facilities are noted for excellence. The public school system has the largest international student center for helping both students and families adjust to life in the United States. DeKalb’s outstanding Special Education Program attracts students from other counties in need of special services.

DeKalb’s two technical schools and six other institutions of higher learning provide an educational environment beneficial to both students and the community at large.

Home buyers may choose from upscale Dunwoody, the small-town, artistic charm of Decatur, the Victorian homes in Stone Mountain, and growing southeastern DeKalb, where land is open and prices more modest. Emory University is ringed by well-groomed apartments and small houses that are heavily populated with students and staff.
