Events leading up to this weekend.

Thursday morning, earlier then I am fully functional, the Sustainability Commission is meeting to discuss next steps in the Green Communities program. Thursday evening the Community Council is meeting to discuss rezoning the SunTrust Mortgage building on Perimeter Center across from the Mall from O-I (Office Institution District) to OCR (Office-Commercial-Residential District) to allow a restaurant or retail store. The other item up for discussion is multiple amendments to the text of the Dunwoody Village Overlay District Sign Ordinance.

Leadership DeKalb will host an Open House

Friday night my two oldest boys and I are shaving our heads at Fado's Irish Pub in solidarity with kids fighting cancer and we are collecting donations through St. Baldrick's to fund more research in fighting childhood cancer. I haven't been pushing for donations in this tough economy but if you would like to make a donation to the cause, please click here. Thanks for those who have already donated. 

Saturday at 7:30 am is the Vanderdash 5K and Fun Run followed by the Atlanta St. Patrick's Day Parade.
