Dunwoody Street Naming on Monday's City Council agenda.
My guess is that Monday night's Dunwoody City Council meeting will last less than half an hour even if we receive 25 minutes of public comment since there is only one item on the agenda and it will immediately be referred to the Planning Commission for action.
It turns out that Dunwoody needs to name the Peachtree Industrial Blvd access road that has been un-named for many years and for safety reasons the Dunwoody Police Department would like this corrected. The work session agenda and the one action item is attached for your review prior to the Monday evening meeting.
Though I do not think that the situation above will match my concerns on this topic, please allow me to get up on my soap box for one second. Politician's naming public facilities after political cronies for political gain turns my stomach and I am of the opinion that the City of Dunwoody should have a strict policy in place of not naming any public facility after any person until after that person has been dead for at least two years. Maybe my views are a little too extreme on the subject but I know of various examples of this happening in bad taste and I would prefer to just outlaw or strictly restrict the practice. Ok, I have just stepped off my soapbox. Thank you for allowing me to vent.
