Dunwoody has completed its road repaving for the year, making the drive smoother on more than 50 roads, the city announced Wednesday.
Dunwoody resident Jason Metzger was on his bicycle about a mile from his home three years ago when a near-calamity changed his attitude toward safety and his behavior on the roads.
The ordinance would impose stiff penalties against violators, including fines, jail time or having their license suspended. The penalties could be removed if the driver agreed to take a driver education class.
Questions from the council during GMC Real Estate Acquisition’s first presentation in August ranged from tree loss to stormwater drainage to potential impacts of the I-285 toll lane project on the proposed development.
The City Council was expected to consider at its Sept. 9 meeting a proposed ordinance that would essentially define public art as “black copy against a white background” to imitate the Spruill Center for the Arts’ iconic “Everything Will Be OK” mural.
The new funding will include $185,000 for a 3.1% pay raise for Dunwoody’s 98 full-time employees, 77 of whom are in the police department.
The Dunwoody City Council is considering a mixed-use development at the intersection of Ashford-Dunwoody Road and I-285 that would include restaurants and retail as well as an 8-story hotel.
The developer for the planned Perimeter Marketplace mixed-use project in the heart of Perimeter Center plans to ask for a Dunwoody tax abatement for the project, but the amount is not yet known.
The City Council is scheduled in September to consider a text amendment to its zoning ordinance to define public art as distinct from commercial signage.
The North Shallowford Annex will also house classroom space for the Dunwoody Parks and Recreation department. The city purchased the five acres of land for $1.4 million in 2011, and recently spent $879,000 to renovate the 12,000-square-foot building.
