Dunwoody announces Groundbreaking Ceremony for the New Ballfields at Brook Run Park - Complete set of Construction Drawings

Friday September 15, 2017
12:00 p.m.
Southwest Corner of North Peachtree Road and Barclay Drive

The ceremonial groundbreaking event will celebrate the beginning of construction for the new ballfields at Brook Run Park.

Please join City of Dunwoody Council members, city partners, and city staff for the celebratory event.

The two new fields, which will also serve as the new home for Dunwoody Senior Baseball, will have rectangular multi-purpose field overlay/striping complete with a durable all-season synthetic turf. The fields will be set-up for shared use by Peachtree Charter Middle School for the school’s gym and outdoor classes. The facility will also include a new concession building, new bathrooms, a playground, bleacher stands, batting cages, and parking.

The fields will be located at the corner of North Peachtree Road and Barclay Drive, an eight-acre property adjacent to Peachtree Charter Middle School. A new bus turn around and drop off with ADA access and handicap parking will also be included at the new site.

A lunch will be served for attendees following the groundbreaking celebration.

PARKING: Please park at Brook Run Park by the pavilion (about midway down South Georgia Way in Brook Run Park) and then walk towards the multi-use trail/Barclay Drive where there is a crosswalk which leads to a paved access road/fire lane onto the site.

Attached below are the final set construction drawings for the ballfield facilities which the included numerous cost cutting measures to get the total cost down to the budged $5.6 million.  The City explored doing underground water detention under the new parking lot but it was a $600K price tag and therefore not recommended.

Georgia Power has been notified of various trees on power lines and City of Dunwoody crews can not work until cleared.

Four trees on Brookhurst down, power on the ground & pole will need to be replaced.

Georgia Power is working their service list based on their various priorities (public safety, granting access for fire trucks to isolated roads with limited access points, number of people affected, etc). Once Georgia Power clears the line out of each work zone, the City of Dunwoody has a crew assigned to follow and clear the street.  Therefore to alleviate any chance of a communication breakdown, if you see Georgia Power truck working a major outage but don't see a City of Dunwoody crew ready to clear the road, the Public Works Director has asked that a call be placed to the Dunwoody Public Works after hours number of 678-382-6700 notifying them of the work being done.

Dunwoody is striving to clear the roads as fast as possible but we are waiting on Georgia Power in a number of locations.    Thanks for your patience.   John
Update to Dunwoody from Georgia Power

After weathering one of the largest storms to hit our state, Georgia Power continued with restoration efforts today. Power outages associated with Hurricane Irma impacted nearly 1 million of our customers all across Georgia. As of 7 p.m. Tuesday, we have restored service to approximately half of those customers. Currently, there are about 470,000 customers without power in Georgia. The Metro Atlanta area has seen similar gains in restoration today, reducing the number of outages to around 200,000 of which ~50,000 are in North Metro Atlanta. We plan to move additional workers into the area tonight and will continue to assess and make repairs based on our assessment tomorrow.

We understand that many of your constituents are frustrated that their power has not yet been restored. The damage and outages to our system are widespread across the state, and in many cases the damage is severe. This is an unprecedented event for our state, and resources are stretched thin as utilities respond to two major storms that not only impacted our state, but also devastated parts of Texas and all of the state of Florida. While our crews are working around the clock to restore service, customers should plan ahead for extended outages that may last for days, and in some cases weeks due to the vast damage from the storm.
