2015 Dunwoody City Council Retreat Powerpoint presentation that lasted for 8 hours.

Mr. Eric Linton the new City Manager for the City of Dunwoody lead an 8 hour discussion for planning the future activities for the Dunwoody City Council.  We reviewed our 2014 activities, items already under way in 2015 and those items or projects which are about to start.  From there we tackled specific topics that he and City Council members believed to be important, allowing in depth conversations to take place.

Looking back on the 148 slide PowerPoint, those 8 hours went by very quickly and it was a very rewarding experience for all involved.

Thank you for all you do. That document makes it clear how much has been accomplished in a short period of time, and how much is still to come this year and beyond. I am particularly looking forward to our own city hall, public art, new parks, and the expansion of our walk/ped infrastructure. Have you given any thought to additional incentives or policies that encourage locally-owned businesses? I don't know how Decatur does it, but they have something like 200 local businesses and it not only keeps money circulating locally but it creates a true sense of place.

John, no discussion at Retreat on the public access TV channel?

Thanks Pattie, I will ask staff to research the locally owned businesses.

Rick, it wasn't on the agenda but Dick Williams was there and at lunch I informed him that you were thinking of hosting a Dunwoody Gang show. I would watch.
