Dunwoody named by Business Week, Georgia's most expensive suburb but I am really waiting for the 2010 Money Magazine, best places to live survey.
I don't give this specific ranking much value as it just repeats the stats from last year but as a member of the Dunwoody City Council I do strive to improve our ranking on Money Magazines best places to live survey. With now accurate crime statistics based only on the City of Dunwoody and not DeKalb County as a whole, I believe our ranking there will rise tremendously.
In case you are not aware, in 2006 Money Magazine stated that Dunwoody had a very high crime rate and with the proper information they changed the way they interpreted our data. The 2008 crime data was still from DeKalb County therefore I am not expecting an improved ranking from Money Magazine until the April 2010 survey is released.
Guiding a city takes patience and vision to plan for the long term but I am very happy to say that our Dunwoody Police Department is making great strides to get us to where we want to be.
