The 4th of July Parade Is Postponed

Other major July 4th events are closing and our favorite marching bands have cancelled their tours.

There is no choice but to postpone the July 4th parade.

The committee is meeting to determine what date to hold the parade and how to restart in 2021.

Thanks for your support and stay tuned - we're not going anywhere!

Comment from the president via the Dunwoody Area Community Forum on Facebook:

Hi folks. I’m the horse’s mouth on this one.
Parade chairs made the call when PRR postponed and I backed them up.
The reality is many of the bands and specialty entries that people enjoy had already cancelled. And will the community revitalize their interest in building their own entries? Don’t know.
The parade will go on later this year. First organizing meeting was yesterday and work is underway.
When the specifics are complete press releases will go out and all the info will be on the DHA website.
I know there’s going to be a range of opinions on this but it comes down to whether we can deliver…

Most grocery stores, restaurants, retail establishments are open.  How much they are able to provide is another story.

State Restrictions on Municipal Zoning are Moving Forward on Feb. 26

In January, we posted about three bills that threatened to affect Dunwoody's viability in the future.

One of these bills, HB 302, would restrict any county or municipality from setting or enforcing building codes beyond what is established at the state level.

This bill now has a companion bill, HB 937 and is proceeding through the committee process.

While State Senator Harrell and State Representative Wilensky promised to oppose this bill, it will move forward in the legislative process tomorrow (February 26) at 8 AM.

It is expected that it will proceed to the Rules Committee at 9 AM that same day.

Some local elected officials dismissed this bill, its potential impact, and the probability of it being passed; the bill still has momentum.  This bill can severely restrict the abilities of Dunwoody and every other city to set its own building standards   Dunwoody incorporated to set zoning and building codes to meet the unique changing needs of the city.  All cities should have these …
