Chesnut / North Peachtree Crosswalk

Standing on a corner in Dunwoody GA in front of Chesnut Elementary School, working with school representatives and public works to determine the best place for a crosswalk.

Update: This afternoon I met with Devin Ramo and Lori Hummel of the Chesnut Parent Teacher Council, Mrs. Williams the Principal of Chesnut and Mrs. Mindy Sanders the City of Dunwoody Capital Projects Manager to discuss all possible crosswalk options and the pros and cons of each option.

In the end after much discussion and sensing the frustration of Mrs Williams, I point blank asked her with all of your knowledge of the school and the flow of your students where would you want the crosswalk? She stated near the bus lane (now called Dr. Richard Reid Circle), just north of the current crosswalk.

We thought that the crosswalk should ideally end on school property with no other crossings where vehicles transverse, be located near the front of the school but also needed to be in a location with only two lanes of traffic where there was no car pool lane. Since the car pool lane was troubling the design, we sketched an idea to bring back to the traffic engineers whereby concrete would be added to add a pedestrian landing / moving the start of the car pool lane and placing the main crosswalk to Chesnut at that location.

Below is a photo of what the traffic engineers and safety professionals will be reviewing.

I explained to Mrs. Williams and the PTC members that we would need to revert back to a status quo for the start of the school year but in the end there will be an upgraded crosswalk with lights engineered safety improvements that everyone can be proud of. Somethings just take time.

Prepare for delays - Vermack / Womack Road storm water repairs.

Construction Area

As I mentioned in an earlier post, we knew this was coming and following this repair Vermack will be a priority for repaving. 
The City of Dunwoody is replacing damaged and deteriorating storm water structures on Vermack Road near the intersection of Vermack Road and Womack Road. This project will increase the capacity of the lines, replace damaged infrastructure, and help alleviate flooding effecting the roadway and local homeowners.

The project is expected to take four weeks and the city anticipates completion of the project prior August 11. Both lanes of traffic will be maintained on Vermack Road to the best extent possible. There may be limited times the road will be decreased to one lane of travel. Any closures will be limited.

These dates and times are subject to change dependent on weather conditions. We appreciate your patience while the city completes this critical infrastructure improvement.

If you have any questions about this project please email the Public Works Department at or call 678-382-6850.

Dunwoody Elementary crossing guard makes City a proposal to assist with troubled intersection at the High School.

At the Dunwoody City Council Meeting on Monday, Mr. Larry Adams the crossing guard at Dunwoody Elementary presented the City Council with a proposal to assist with traffic control at Dunwoody High School both in the morning and afternoon after his shift at DES.  The DeKalb School System does not pay for crossing guards above elementary school therefore the proposal would need to be paid by the City of Dunwoody.   The sum of $3,100.00 ($18.00 per hour) for the school year is reasonable and I am in favor of taking Mr. Adams up on his offer.  I am guessing this is currently under legal review and then discussions might have to take place with the new Principal Tom McFarrin and the DCSS Administration.   Mr. Adams has requested a formal meeting to discuss the proposal and I hope it takes place soon.

Dunwoody Road Closure for Storm Water Repair, Summer Paving Progresses, and Brook Run Trail Nears Finish Line

The City of Dunwoody is currently engaged in several beneficial and exciting infrastructure projects in different phases of active development and construction.

2014 Citywide Paving PlansIn July and August, the city will continue “paving the way” with paving and repair work on the following streets:
Chart 1
Paving Map

The city also has funded paving of the following streets in this year’s budget.  Dunwoody is coordinating the paving of the following streets in conjunction with a water main replacement project by DeKalb County on Mount Vernon Road and Chamblee Dunwoody Road.  Due to the timing of the water main replacement project, Mount Vernon Road, Chamblee Dunwoody Road and the side streets listed below will likely be paved in the spring of 2015 following the completion of the utility work
Chart 2
Road Closure
The City of Dunwoody has a land area of over 13 square miles, accumulating approximately 50 inches of precipitation per year. That is a lot of rainwater and it has to go somewhere. The city completed a survey of the storm water infrastructure system in 2011, identifying 10,289 structures, and 8,377 conveyances. The majority of these structures are close to 40 years old and ready for replacement.
The city will be replacing a deteriorating storm drain culvert that runs beneath Mt. Vernon Road between North Peachtree Road and Jett Ferry Road beginning Friday, July 11 after 7 p.m.  The section of Mt. Vernon Road between North Peachtree Road and Jett Ferry Road will be closed. Traffic will be detoured around the construction; however, residents that live on Mt. Vernon Road, Saffron Drive, and North Peachtree Rd. will have local access via Mt. Vernon Road.
Parishioners of All Saints Catholic Church will be able to access the church for Saturday and Sunday services. Work is expected to be complete before 6 a.m. Monday, July 14.

Work on the latest segment of the Brook Run multi-use trail is about 90 percent complete.  Weather permitting, the city anticipates construction crews will finish the 1.3 mile addition to the multi-use trail at Brook Run Park by the end of July. Once complete, the entirety of the Brook Run Trail will include decorative benches and waste/recycling receptacles along the trail route for beautification and convenience. Stay tuned for details of the Grand Opening!
City inspectors continue close monitoring of all construction activity and work to ensure compliance with Georgia Environmental Protection Division requirements regarding erosion and sediment control.
As future phases are completed in the coming years, the Dunwoody Trailway will run from Brook Run Park to Chamblee Dunwoody Road and will cover 3.3 total miles.

Pernoshal ParkPernoshal Park
On March 8, 2012, the City unveiled a new redevelopment initiative: Project Renaissance – A New Georgetown. This initiative is a revitalization effort to implement the community-developed Georgetown / North Shallowford Master Plan (adopted in 2011) and promote a catalytic redevelopment opportunity for the Georgetown area. Project Renaissance activates 35 acres of land off of North Shallowford Road – a 16 acre parcel and a 19 acre property.
As Project Renaissance continues to promote positive change in the Georgetown area, development of Pernoshal Park is moving forward. The new 5-acre park will be located on the North Shallowford side of the 19-acre property. Development of the construction documents for the park are in the final stages. Once approved, construction of the park can proceed with an expected grand opening mid-2015. Pernoshal Park will feature an open play field with terraced, grassed seating for picnics and casual recreation. A large pavilion will provide shade for small events and family outings and visitors can have fun playing basketball or pickle ball on one of the three sports courts.
John Wieland Homes and Neighborhood’s redevelopment of the 19-acre site will also create a vibrant center of activity in Georgetown. The residential development will be a quiet enclave of single family homes, tucked away from the liveliness of the park and open space, but still very much connected and an essential part of the success of the overall redevelopment.

Construction crews continue to make progress on the Dunwoody Village Main Street project.  The curbing and driveway entrances on the south side of Dunwoody Village Parkway have been completed and crew are finishing up with the sidewalk construction.  Final preparations are being made on the roadway for paving work on the south side.  After completion of the south side paving, crews will shift to commence work on the north side, moving traffic to the south side of the thoroughfare.

The timing of the traffic signals at either end of the parkway (at both Chamblee Dunwoody Road and at Mount Vernon Road) are running on fixed cycles until the construction is completed.  Once work at these intersections is complete, the signals will be re-set to operate via the inductive-loop traffic detector sensors typically installed at signalized intersections.

The shops, restaurants, and businesses located in the Village Parkway area will remain accessible throughout construction.

The city worked closely with the businesses in Dunwoody Village and continues to conduct proactive outreach and communication on the project.  Main Street project information materials, including a store front project poster and point of sale flyers to display adjacent to registers, are available free of charge for Village businesses by contacting Bob Mullen at 678-382-6881 or .
For additional information regarding the Main Street project please contact Michael Smith, Public Works Director, at 678-382-6850 or email

The City of Dunwoody has selected URS to be the consultant to design multimodal improvements for Chamblee Dunwoody Road from Cotillion Drive to Peeler Road/N. Shallowford Road.  They have also been tasked with designing concepts for the intersections of Chamblee Dunwoody Road at Peeler Road/N. Shallowford Road and at Vermack Road as well as for pedestrian connectivity along Cotillion Drive between Chamblee Dunwoody and N. Shallowford Road.  This project scope includes operational improvements for vehicles as well as upgrades and expansion of the existing pedestrian and bicycle facilities along this corridor.  It also seeks to enhance the area with the development of a gateway to our city and streetscape design along the corridor. 
The city held a “Kick-Off” meeting earlier this month with URS (the consultant), Georgia Department of Transportation, and the Atlanta Regional Commission to discuss next steps for this important project.  URS will begin a survey of the corridor at the end of July, allowing for more detailed concepts to be presented to the public.  Additional public meetings will be held this fall. Please stay tuned to the City of Dunwoody website and future city emails for exact dates and times.

Dunwoody Update by Councilman Denny Shortal

Good evening my fellow citizens … the following are some update items of interest …

1. Dunwoody Independence Day Parade … Our parade is not only the biggest in Georgia but also the best. There were over 170 entries in the parade and over 30,000 of the best citizens in the nation lining the parade route. We all owe Pam Tallmadge and Penny Forman - they are in charge of the parade - and all the other volunteers that make our parade a success a vote of thanks. Yes, the entire parade is put on by volunteers … that is what I call great community involvement/spirit. Also a thanks to all the “Chaplains" in our city for the weather prayers that brought us the great weather. 

2. Voting … The Georgia Primary run off election takes place on July 22, 2014 at you normal polling place … polls are open from 7 AM to 7 PM. You can also vote in person in Early/Advanced Voting M thru F from 8 AM to 5 PM at DeKalb County Voting Office, 4380 Memorial Dr, Suite 300, Decatur, GA 30032 thru July 18. Absentee voting is also available. Go to this site to get your absentee ballot application … You can either mail the application to the address above, fax it to 404-298-4020 or email it to … I recommend faxing or emailing. Dekalb is very good with quick response to get a ballot to you. You must select either a Republican or a Democratic ballot. The Republican ballot has three races … U. S. Senate, State School Superintendent and the very important DeKalb County Sheriff. The Democratic ballot has two races … State School Superintendent and the very important DeKalb County Sheriff. Who ever you are voting for PLEASE vote. I hope Dunwoody has a lot higher voter turnout than we did at the Primary Election in May. 

3. Property Appeal … Just a reminder to everyone that if you are going to appeal your 2013 property tax assessment the deadline in next Monday, July 14. Your appeal must be done in writing and postmarked no later than July 14. Appeal information/instructions are on the property tax assessment that you received from DeKalb County. 

4. Road Closure … The following note is from our Public Works Dir. concerning a road closure on Mt Vernon in the area of All Saints Church. This is to replace a deteriorating storm sewer drain that runs beneath Mt Vernon Rd. We make it a practice to replace all deteriorating storm sewer pipes prior to paving a road. "We have a storm water pipe under Mount Vernon between North Peachtree Road and Jett Ferry Road that needs to be replaced.  The work is scheduled to start Friday night, July 11 at 7 p.m. and continue until complete Saturday evening or Sunday.  A detour will be set up for through traffic on Mount Vernon via Dunwoody Club and Jett Ferry.  There will be local access for all businesses and residents in the area.” The following website give more detailed information as well as a detour map.    

4. New Fire Equipment … Tomorrow, July 11 at 2 PM DeKalb County (DC) Fire Rescue will be placing a brand new state of the art Fire Pumper (Fire truck in our words) is service at Station 12 located on Roberts Dr by Dunwoody Senior Baseball Park. The community is invite to come and observe the ceremony. We have also have been advised that DC has (6) 70 Ft ladder truck in production and one of those truck will be placed in our Dunwoody Fire Station 21 located on Crown Park Parkway. 

5. Traffic … Remember that our fellow pedestrian citizens have rights to cross the street in crosswalks. If you see someone in a crossway on your side of the road they have the right of way. A yield sign does not give the driver right of way over a pedestrian in a crosswalk. Lets all be courteous to our fellow citizens and take care of each other. A word to the wise … our Police has stepped up enforcement of crosswalk violators.

6. Community Beautification … A step to enhance our community appearance would be for all of us not to put our trash out in front of our houses until the evening before the trash pick up. If you are leaving town ask you neighbor to take you trash out for you. Also taking your empty trash container off the street the same day as pick up is a nice touch. I am sure your neighbors would be appreciative of these actions.

7. Car Break-Ins … We continue to have a rash of car break-ins where an item/items of value are left in plain site. The bad guys are just walking around looking for easy victim. They can break a window and be in and out of your car in less than a minute … don’t give them a reason to break into your car. Keep anything of value or that gives the appearance of possibly being of value out of sight. 

8. Town Hall Meeting … The Town Hall or Citizen Connection meeting for District One will be held on AUG 28th from 7 to 9 PM at the Dunwoody Nature Center’s new covered pavilion. Councilman Terry Nall and I will be your host. 

9. That is all from here tonight. I trust all of you are enjoying this nice warm summer. Keep yourself up-to-date by checking our city website @ Remember we are all neighbors so lets be kind to each other. Please pass this update on to your friends, neighbors, members of your HOA and anyone you think maybe interested. If you would like to be added to my update email list just let me know and I will make that happen. I appreciate your thoughts and comments so keep them coming. 

Let Us Continue To Build Our City Together

Botched Aug 2013 DeKalb County boil water advisory affects hundreds of thousands - also issue not noted in annual report to consumers.

A Channel 2 Action News investigation found that DeKalb water officials made a serious error with a public health warning last summer. The head of the agency downplayed the scale of the risk, even as complaints poured in from all over the county. When water pressure drops too low, for any reason, there’s a risk the water will become contaminated.

In this case from August 2013, that risk was system wide, affecting 700,000 people. A state inspector complained soon after that DeKalb County had a pattern of not issuing required public health warnings.
The problem started at DeKalb’s massive Scott Candler plant in Doraville. DeKalb County’s response to the drop in water pressure made it seem like a minor disruption, affecting only 37,000 customers in Tucker.  But, what virtually no one knew in August is that DeKalb County was besieged by customer complaints about low pressure from Lithonia, Tucker, Stone Mountain, Decatur, Chamblee, Doraville and Dunwoody – the entire county.

A state inspector was far more critical, writing, “The boil water advisory should have been issued system wide. Calls from customers that were out of the water were not heeded by upper management.”   He said he would give DeKalb County’s water system a grade of “needs improvement.”

DeKalb County  Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) seems to forget about the above issues.

"DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management provides its customers with high quality, safe drinking water that surpasses the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the State of Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) requirements. DeKalb County has consistently produced superior quality drinking water. "

US EPA states that the Consumer Confidence Reportmust report numerous things including...

the water system's compliance with other drinking water-related rules

This information looks to be missing from the 2013 Consumer Confidence Report that was published in May 2014 to me.   Maybe it will be noted in the next one?
