Recap of June 24th Dunwoody Comprehensive Land Use Meeting on Transportation.

By: Jennifer Peterson, Community Development Director

Approximately 85 people attended our second community meeting. POND and Company began the evening with an overview of the comprehensive planning process in general and a recap of the June 2nd meeting results.

The majority of the evening focused on various transportation challenges and options available for Dunwoody’s future. There was a substantial discussion about the overall merits and drawbacks to public transportation, as well as discussion about the types, locations, and programming of public transportation that might be good options for our city.

The second part of the evening was a discussion about urban design, most particularly what sorts of heights and scales of development would be appropriate in the areas where we anticipate change to occur. The group then participated in a visual preference survey to further demonstrate what heights and development types would be acceptable and encouraged.

The next meeting on July 7th will focus on parks, public facilities, and funding. I hope to see you there!
