Interesting but was scheduled well before a DHA meeting.

Since the city Manager, Warren Hutmacher, said March 7 would the deadline to (FINALLY) fix the 911 interface problem that he has mismanaged - it would be nice to have him provide an update at the City Council meeting. I would hope you would ask it to be added to the agenda. Maybe it's all working now? Without an update, it leads to distrust. Thank you.

Vis-a-vis the last item: Mount Vernon Road.

There is no demonstrable proof that adding a third lane to Mt. Vernon Rd will INCREASE traffic volume, in spite of how many times we hear "If you build it, they will come!"

Having restrictions at both ends of the segment within P'tree Corners and Sandy Springs means that volume is "fixed" to that associated with two lanes.

What can be demonstrated is that emergency vehicles CANNOT move quickly along Mt. Vernon (the major E-W artery in Dunwoody) during peak traffic times; that bicyclists and pedestrians are NOT accomodated with the existing structures east of Chamblee Dunwoody, and that significant delays occur at major intersections including Vermack, Tilly Mill, Jett Ferry because of poorly designed intersections.

All of this begs for a reasonable, fact-based discussion on Mt. Vernon traffic, and not quoting anecdotes and adages.

Our City Council needs to face up to the responsibility of making tough decisions, and not postponing them until the next council.
