DHA STATEMENT ON DUNWOODY VILLAGE OVERLAY ZONING UPDATES PRESENTED FEBRUARY 9, 2020

On February 9, the Dunwoody Homeowners Association held a public board meeting in part to discuss the proposed updates to Dunwoody Village zoning and usage. Numerous residents from the adjacent neighborhoods of The Branches and Vernon Oaks shared their perspectives on how these proposed updates will impact their lives and homes. The meeting was recorded and live streamed via Facebook and the details of these comments may be viewed at that location.

At the board’s session after the public meeting, the board considered the proposed changes and the citizen’s comments and voted unanimously (with one abstention) to endorse a 100-foot buffer between the Village commercial properties and the homeowners’ lots in the Branches; 50 feet of undisturbed forested land adjacent to the homeowners and 50 feet of transitional landscaping on the commercial side.

On the subject of residential units, either permitted by right or via SLUP, the board voted against allowing residential units in the plan. Wh…

GDOT Releases a Video Rendering of Toll Lanes Over Dunwoody Neighborhoods

For years, Dunwoody has been telling GDOT and anyone else who would listen under the Gold Dome that paving 285 isn't alleviating congestion and it's time to invest more into rail and other alternatives.  They're going to pave anyway and there is a significant negative impact projected for Dunwoody, Sandy Springs, Brookhaven, Chamblee, and Doraville.

From the Dunwoody Reporter Newspaper:



DHA meeting from February 2019
First 80 minutes.  More is available on the DHA Facebook page.

Three Gold Dome Bills Dunwoody Homeowners Should Be Concerned About

The Georgia legislative session begins today, January 13, 2020.

Within the wide range of bills being promoted are three that, if passed, will take large bites out of Dunwoody's budget and force taxes to be raised on Dunwoody homeowners.

HB 411 Sponsored by:  Brett Harrell (House District 106 - Snellville)
This bill would require that all services paid with local taxes be billed individually.  In Dunwoody, that would mean that water, sewer, sanitation - county services, etc would all require separate bills to be mailed to each homeowner.
It sounds innocuous but according to past Fianancial Director Chris Pike, the administration and printing and mailing costs would result in an additional $350,000 cost to the City of Dunwoody per year.   
HB 244 Sponsored by: Mary Margaret Oliver (House District 82 - Decatur)

This bill has been through several sessions and was stopped year after year by past Dunwoody legislators.
This bill will tax incorporated cities in DeKalb county in order to pay…

Dunwoody High School Baseball Celebrates Grand Opening of New Field with Ribbon Cutting, Scrimmage and Fundraiser

Members of the community are invited to attend the scrimmage and Marlow’s Tavern Fundraiser on January 25, 2020.


Dunwoody, GA – January 6, 2020 - Baseball season is right around the corner and we can’t wait to play on our new field! As some may recall, last season we were unable to play any home games on the Dunwoody High School baseball field due to unsafe playing conditions. In addition to the visible surface issues, it was discovered that a large drainpipe running across the outfield was severely damaged.

Thanks to our friends at Dunwoody Senior Baseball we rescheduled and played most of our home games at the Brook Run Park baseball fields.

The Dunwoody High School staff and the Dunwoody Diamond Club began collaborating with the Dekalb County School System to explore remedies for restoring the DHS field to acceptable playing conditions and get our games back on campus. This collaboration began in March and many options were considered. Through exploration and constructive …
