Dunwoody Update: DeKalb CEO, Dunwoody Village Townhomes

1. DeKalb County (DC) CEO … DC CEO Lee May will be hold a “Town Hall” meeting tomorrow evening Jun 10th at Dunwoody City Hall. Lee is very open and straight forward with his comments. Let us get a big crowd to attend and listen to what Lee has to say.

2. Proposed Townhomes (81) in Dunwoody Village (DV) … Last night’s CC Meeting …. On the first resolution to amend the DV Master Plan (DVMP) Section of the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Map from Small Scale Office to For Sale Residential to allow for construction of townhomes the resolution failed 2 - 5. I voted against the resolution.

The second resolution was to rezone the entire property noted in the first resolution from Office-Institution (O-I) to Multi-Dwelling Residential District (RM-100) to allow for the construction of an 81-unit townhome development. This motion failed for lack of a second. Then there was a motion to defer this second resolution, which was questioned but allowed, and the deferral passed 4 -3 … I voted against the deferral. The reasons I opposed this development was that it doesn’t comply with the DV Master Plan concerning living quarters for “empty nesters / senior population” as the townhomes don’t have a master bedroom, bath and kitchen facilities on the first floor, doesn’t provide for “green space” as stated in the DVMP and doesn’t provide for proper height buffering for the single family residential that are behind the development. What are your thoughts?

3. That is all from here as it is almost time to hit the rack! Please pass this on to all your friends, neighbors, members of your HOA or anyone else you think maybe interested. If anyone would like to be added to my email list please let me know and I will make that happen. Thanks for your continued support and remember that each of us have stake in our City and we are all neighbors so lets treat each other with respect and kindness.
