Wal-Mart is looking at Winters Chapel & Peeler, Dunwoody Mayoral Race and other things that have crossed my desk.

At Sunday's DHA meeting the topic of a proposed Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market was discussed anchoring the intersection of Winters Chapel and Peeler Rd.  I have been aware of this proposal for a while and though the actual store will be located in Gwinnett County, (the possible City of Peachtree Corners if approved by referendum in November) as the County Line runs though the parking lot, I believe it is a positive addition to the east side of the city and am looking forward to hearing more details.  The City of Dunwoody will be working closely with the developer and Gwinnett County in the coming weeks to work out the logistical issues of developing a property that straddles the county line.

Dunwoody Mayoral Race
Also at the DHA meeting, Bob Dallas an attorney and Chairman of the Dunwoody Planning Commission informed the Dunwoody Homeowners Association Sunday night that he hopes to become Dunwoody’s next mayor, though it appears that he is planing a formal announcement next week. Mr. Jamie Sibold, also an attorney and the former DeKalb County Republican Party chairman, also announced his intentions to form an exploratory committee to seek the office of Mayor of Dunwoody. Today's Dunwoody Crier shows that a third candidate has entered the Mayoral race, Mr. Mike Davis.

I plan on devoting a single posting to every candidate who officially announces that they are a candidate for elected office in Dunwoody with all relevant information as it becomes available. Look for my Mike Davis page soon.
