Dunwoody Update: Sanitation, State of the City, Electronics Recycling, Peachtree Industrial, City Council Meeting, Arbor Day

1. Happy President’s Day!

2. Sanitation / Trash Pick-up … Since today is a holiday all trash pick-up will be one day later than normal this week. 

3. State of the City Address … The Dunwoody State of the City Address will be this Thursday, FEB 22, at the Crown Plaza Hotel in the Ravinia Ballroom. The times for the reception are 6 - 7 PM with the State of the City event starting at 7 PM. Everyone is invited and most welcome ... I hope to see all of you there. There will the light hors d’oeuvres and deserts served … last year someone didn’t eat their desert so I finished it off for you. The theme for this year is “Where we have been, where we are and where we are going.”

4. Electronic Recycling … The first Dunwoody electronic recycling event of 2018 will take place Saturday, FEB 25, at St Luke’s Presbyterian Church, 1978 Mt Vernon Rd from 1 - 4 PM. This is a popular event so pre-registration is required and you have to be a citizen of Dunwoody. To pre-register go to … Electronics Recycling Event Registration page … prior to 5 PM on Friday, FEB 23. 

5. Peachtree Industrial Blvd Small Area Study … In this study we are seeking public input on the possibilities of some redevelopment in this area. The event will take place on Tuesday, FEB 27, from 6 - 8 PM at the Crossroads Church, 4805 Tilly Mill Rd. Come with your "thinking cap" on and give us your input. 

6. City Council Meeting … The next city council meeting will take place on Monday, FEB 26, at 6 PM at our new city hall. There are agenda items that are very important to all of us … redevelopment of our old city hall site on which we are seeking your input and also an update on the change of ownership of the Chevron Station in Dunwoody Village, just to mention two items. 

7. Arbor Day … We celebrated Dunwoody Arbor Day last Friday by planting a tree at our new city hall and also at Dunwoody HS. On Saturday morning we planted numerous trees on the Brook Run Park side of Barclay Rd. Thanks to all that volunteered … students from Pope HS, Georgia State, Georgia Tech, Bank America employees and many citizen volunteers. A little rain didn’t bother the volunteers that showed up.
