14 Informational Meetings scheduled on the Dunwoody Parks Bond Referendums.

Citizens for Dunwoody, a local group of citizens, will be holding 14 public information sessions on Dunwoody's two parks bond referendums set for the Nov. 8 ballot. The two bonds, both for $33 million, would be used individually for acquiring park property and improving the city's current parks. Each bond is worth about .75 mills, which adds about $30 in property tax for each $100,000 in home value. One or more representatives from the City will be present to help answer questions at three of the meetings as indicated.  Below is a letter from Dan Weber that I saw in the Crier along with the schedule of presentations.
Between now and the November 8 vote on the parks bond referenda, Citizens for Dunwoody will be reaching out to you through several media to provide information concerning the bonds.  Those media will include articles in The Crier, a flier in the annual mailing from the Dunwoody Homeowners Association, and Emails with links to relevant information.  The best way to learn about the bonds, however, is by attending one of the community or neighborhood meetings listed below, so pull out your calendar and find a date that you can attend.  One or more representatives from the city will be present to help answer questions at three of the meetings as indicated.  If your neighborhood or group would like for one of our presenters to come to one of your meetings, please Email me at

    On November 8th, the citizens of Dunwoody will need to decide whether we want to be a city whose current voting populace will be the caring custodians of our children's future and that these same children, upon becoming adults, will find our town to be the same Canaan that we did, and journey back here to allow us to share in raising our grandchildren, by approving the necessary bonds to finance purchasing green space and developing and improving parks, or if we want to be overly parsimonious people with a short-sighted Tea Party type mentality and quash this most auspicious opportunity for our community.

    Please vote to support our parks and our children's future in Dunwoody on November 8th!
