City of Dunwoody Seeks Online Input for Comprehensive Plan Update

Community members will be able to go online to read and provide input on “Dunwoody Next,” the City’s Comprehensive Plan update for 2020.

Dunwoody, GA – May 19, 2020 – The City of Dunwoody is taking a new approach to seek additional public input as part of “Dunwoody Next,” the Comprehensive Plan update for 2020. Starting today, community members are encouraged to go online to read the latest draft and provide feedback through a survey.

“The draft includes changes made after our first public input meeting in February,” said Dunwoody Community Development Director Richard McLeod. “We planned another session in April but had to cancel it due to COVID-19. By moving the process online, we’re providing the public with a safe and convenient way to participate.”  

The Comprehensive Plan is a roadmap for long-range policy direction. It guides decisions about land use, transportation, economic development, housing, infrastructure and more. The City of Dunwoody revises its Comprehensive Plan every five years with guidance from the Georgia Department of Community Affairs. 

A team from the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) is serving as project manager for this process, gathering input and providing analysis of opportunities and needs for the City. Later in 2020, recommended updates will be presented to the Dunwoody City Council for consideration.
