Dunwoody Farmers Market Reopens on July 11 at Brook Run Park

The Dunwoody Farmers Market opens Saturday, July 11th at Brook Run Park with vendors onsite & live music. The market runs 8:30am – 12pm through October 31st, rain or shine.

To maintain a healthy and safe environment for our vendors and customers we have implemented a few health protections to include a minimum of six feet between vendor booths and no touching of food items prior to purchase.

Instead of touching food items themselves, customers should direct freshly gloved vendors to bag their selections, and vendors will place bags within reach of customers before accepting their cash or cards for payment. In order to separate the handling of cash or cards from the handling of food items, vendors will change gloves to process payments or direct payments to a gloved assistant who does not handle food items.

We encourage everyone who is healthy and feels safe, to visit the Dunwoody Farmers Market in order to buy healthy, local food from our farmers, and small businesses.

We ask that you follow these guidelines:

Masks are encouraged.

Please shop with a purpose and do not linger at the market. This will help reduce the number of customers in the market at any one time.

We are allowing more space between each vendor’s booth. These are not walkways, but distancing measures.

Maintain at least a double arm’s length distance between other shoppers and vendors, especially while you are waiting in line.

Do NOT greet anyone at the market with hugs or handshakes and avoid touching your face.

No hand-to-hand contact will be allowed between vendors and shoppers. Point to the product that you would like to purchase, allow the vendor to bag it and set it down on the table before you pick it up.

Do not hand vendors payments directly. Place cash and credit cards on the table for vendors to pick up. Many of our vendors use Square Card readers. Vendors have turned off the signature requirement so you will not be touching their phones.

Please leave pets at home. We love dogs, but please do not bring them to the market at this time! The CDC recommends that pet owners limit their pet’s interaction with people outside their household. Walk dogs on a leash at least 6 feet (2 meters) away from others and avoid public places where a large number of people gather. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/pets.html

Service animals welcome: Service or assistance animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Service animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA or Georgia Law.

Anyone who is feeling unwell in any way should stay home.

Any shopper who is at a higher risk with underlying health conditions, should stay home.

Patience, kindness, and common sense can keep us all safe and healthy!

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 co

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. W

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
