The City of Dunwoody will hold a public workshop on the Dunwoody Village Master Plan to seek input on master plan updates and zoning requirements for the area. The workshop will be held on Saturday, June 29 from 1 to 4 p.m. at Vintage Pizza, 5510 Chamblee Dunwoody Road.
The public is invited to attend to hear about options for zoning for the Dunwoody Village and give their input. The workshop will be led by TSW, the Atlanta-based planning firm hired by the city to review and rewrite the regulations.
“When we met with residents last year, we wanted them to help us shape the vision for the Dunwoody Village,” said City of Dunwoody Community Development Director Richard McLeod. “Now we’re ready to get into the specifics of what our zoning should require.”
The public workshop will start with a presentation by TSW, followed by a walking tour of part of the Dunwoody Village and creative exercises to help set priorities. Each part of the meeting will take about an hour.
Here are some zoning elements that will be discussed:
- Height restrictions for buildings
- New roadways to make the Village more walkable
- New sidewalks
- Park and/or greenspace
- Land uses
In December 2018, the Dunwoody City Council approved several zoning amendments to the Village Overlay, including removing the Williamsburg style of architecture as a requirement. Drive-thrus for new buildings were also prohibited.
