What is your vision for the city of Dunwoody?
The city of Dunwoody in in the process of conducting a Comprehensive Plan 5 Year Update. The Comprehensive Plan is a policy document that assists decision-making and administrative actions in an effort to guide the City of Dunwoody towards the community’s preferred future.
Subsequent to the original Comprehensive Plan adoption, the city has also adopted the Comprehensive Transportation Plan, Parks and Recreation Master Plan, Dunwoody Village Master Plan, and Georgetown/North Shallowford Master Plan as addenda, demonstrating the city’s continued commitment and efforts toward establishing an encompassing guiding policy document.
The update will coordinate the assessment of new demographic and economic data and trends, consider the current version of the Comprehensive Plan, make amendments based on community input, and will have a heavy focus on economic development analysis and policy setting.
The Shape Dunwoody planning process will collect input over a five-month period to help inform the five-year update of the city’s Comprehensive Land Use Plan. Modifications to the plan will be shaped public input as well as technical analysis completed by the planning team.
The City of Dunwoody invites residents, property owners, business owners, and all other members of the Dunwoody community to share their hopes, dreams and concerns for the future of Dunwoody. We are plannning future Community Goals Workshops to occur in April and others to follow that will lay the foundation for the five-year update of the City’s Comprehensive Land Use Plan, Shape Dunwoody.
Community members are encouraged to attend and come ready to share their ideas at a series of workshops. The workshops will be hands-on, focused on collecting input about the city’s future, specifically the overarching long-term vision and community goals for land use and other service areas provided by the city. Topics to be explored include aging in place, Dunwoody’s unique identity, jobs-housing balance, future land use, transportation enhancements, and city infrastructure/services. The workshops are the first two in a series of six that will be held through June to gather input for the plan update
Subsequent workshops will focus on priority needs, the five-year work program, and review of the draft plan update. The updated plan will be reviewed by both the Atlanta Regional Commission and Department of Community Affairs prior to being considered for action by the City Council. Four additional public workshops are planned for the first half of 2015 and will be followed by public hearings.
The City’s existing Comprehensive Land Use Plan was developed in 2010, shortly after Dunwoody incorporated. The Comprehensive Land Use Plan is the preeminent legal document guiding future development in Dunwoody. The Comprehensive Land Use Plan provides the city with a roadmap on long-range policy direction for land use, transportation, economic development, housing, public facilities, inter-governmental agreements along with its natural and cultural resources. The update will address each of these planning areas while giving a special focus to economic development.
Outcome: Visions have been submitted for Comprehensive Plan.
