After living here for 20 years I can say without hesitation that Doraville is governed by the most ignorant and inept citizens in the region. Doraville is a jewel waiting to be discovered and should be the most valuable property in the Atlanta area but the visionless, uneducated council sit on their collective hands and do nothing but raise taxes, give themselves huge salaries, and cheer about holding 10-minute council meetings. Transient renters are allowed to wreak havoc on property values and a blind-eye is turned when laws and ordinances are broken by these uninvested groups that cram into our neighborhood houses. Nothing good will ever come to Doraville until the mayor and her stooges are deposed...which if there is a god, will be soon!

I love the diversity of Doraville. It is the Mecca for authentic, worldly foods. Once you enter the international highway, all of your sense come alive. It is multicultural in its people, food, restaurants, and shops. I would love to see it become more of a friendly commuter, bike-riding or walking area. Perhaps add bike lanes and safer sideways.
I moved to Doraville when I was in middle school, I was very new to the area so i didn't understand the environment I was living in. As years past by, I began to grow closer with my community and realized how diverse and welcoming Doraville area is. Because this area is so diverse, I was able to eat food from all around the world: from China to Korean to Mexico to Cuba. I was never disappointed with the restaurants around Doraville area; there was always something to do and eat.
