Mayor Ken Wright
The City of Dunwoody will host the first State of the City Address on Thursday, January 28, 2010 at the 1420 Room off Dunwoody Village Parkway. This year’s inaugural address will focus on challenges overcome during the City’s first year and the many accomplishments of 2009. Mayor Wright will also discuss new goals and opportunities for 2010 and the projects expected to take shape in the coming year. Following the State of the City event, the speech in its entirety, will be available on the City of Dunwoody website at www.dunwoodyga.gov.
The festivities will kick off with a reception, open to the public beginning at 5:00 p.m. The State of the City Address will begin at 6:00 p.m. followed by a program commemorating the City of Dunwoody’s one-year anniversary. On display at the State of the City Address will be a museum style exhibit created by the Dunwoody Preservation Trust highlighting the past year and a half of Dunwoody history. The City will also be displaying a time capsule, built to hold and protect cherished pieces of city history for 100 years. Residents are encouraged to submit suggestions for items to be stored in the capsule for future generations to discover in 2110. The capsule will be housed at the current Dunwoody City Hall until a more permanent location can be determined.
