Letter from DHA Board to Dunwoody City Council Regarding Code Compliance

   October 2020 To:   Dunwoody Mayor & City Council Re:   Need for Improved Code Compliance At its March board meeting, the Dunwoody Homeowners Association held a discussion about opportunities for improved code enforcement.   Several of our board members personally observed commercial areas with covered windows and gang tags. The former represents a serious safety lapse when police are called to a location; the latter is a blatant expression of organized crime. The board voted to compose a letter expressing these concerns to city council.   Soon afterwards, the coronavirus pandemic hit and the proposal was tabled while our community faced a crisis that seemed more immediate. While the community waited for some return to normalcy, the issues that originally raised our concern have worsened.   Gang tags that “mark territory” have advanced further from commercial areas into single family neighborhoods. Dunwoody incorporated to provide better services to the residents.

A rezoning that close, to allow 15 homes to be built, requires several variances to be feasible.   These variances will result in the development imposing on existing neighborhoods and diminishing the owners’ quality of life and risks damage to the current homes themselves. A variance is requested that will increase the total impervious surface of the properties from 40% to 85%.   We believe this change, if enacted will cause environmental damage to nearby neighborh
