Dunwoody Zoning Code Rewrite Meeting - Fri June 22nd

Date: Friday, June 22, 2012
Time: 12:00pm – 1:30pm
Location: City Hall
41 Perimeter Center East

In partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the City will present recommendations for sustainable practices to be incorporated in the Zoning Code Rewrite.  This meeting is a result of a technical assistance grant the City received earlier this year for the Building Blocks for Sustainable Communities Program, Green Building Toolkit.

A consultant team led by Code Studio and YR&G is currently working with EPA to assess and make recommendations to the Zoning Code that will be based on sustainable sites, water efficiency, and energy conservation.  This opportunity capitalizes on the rewrite process to advance the incentives and regulations related to sustainable practices to further the City’s sustainability mission.  The presentation is the culmination of assessments made through the EPA Green Building Toolkit, consultant review of existing code, and technical staff input.

The public is invited and encouraged to attend to contribute to the process to ensure a sustainable future for the City of Dunwoody.  The meeting will be streamed and a video posted for members of the public who are unable to attend at the scheduled time.

The sounding board wasn't notified either. I'd like to know why.

I'd also like to know whose idea it was to host this meeting in the middle of the day. Not all of us who want to be involved in the city are retirees who have become "professional meeting goers." We have families and jobs that require our attention during the day. Evenings can be set aside with sufficient advance notice - which this isn't.

Can anyone step up and explain both the short notice and the meeting time?

Yes, I can explain.
It's called Agenda 21; people are pollution. Stop asking questions, the proles don't need to be involved in these decisions...
Take a long look at the 2030 plan, tells you everything you need to know.
