GM Doraville Plan Killed By DeKalb Board
Business

DECATUR, GA -- The DeKalb County Board of Commissioners voted 5-2 to kill New Broad Street Companies' deal to acquire and redevelop the former General Motors plant on 165 acres in Doraville.

DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis lamented the $110 million project would have created 9,000 jobs and pumped $360 million in wages back into the local economy.

Ellis called Tuesday's defeat a "lost opportunity" but said "all hope is not lost." He will try to work with the board to pursue other ideas for the site.
