Upcoming City Council Meetings

  • Monday, June 11 at 7:00pm
  • Tuesday, June 26 at 7:00pm
Memorial Day Commemoration
Dunwoody's Memorial Day Commemoration is Monday, May 28, 10:00am at Brook Run Park. Join us in helping to honor those that have served our country.

Ashford-Dunwoody Road at I-285: Traffic Alert
The Ashford-Dunwoody Road bridge at I-285 will close (weather permitting) from 9:00pm on Friday, June 1 until 5:00am on Monday, June 4. Detours around the bridge will utilize the Perimeter Center Parkway "flyover" bridge between Hammond Drive and Lake Hearn Drive. Access ramps to and from I-285 will remain open.
When the Ashford-Dunwoody Road bridge reopens on Monday, June 4, the Diverging Diamond Interchange will be in effect with a dramatic new traffic pattern, signals, and signs. This innovative design is the first in Georgia. The design shifts the flow of traffic to the opposite side of the road to reduce points of traffic conflict and improve traffic flow and safety. Please be alert to the new signs and new signals. The expectation is a reduction in traffic delays during rush times by up to 20 percent. For more information, go to

Georgetown Renaissance Project
Dunwoody officials recently hosted a packed-room community presentation to review the redevelopment proposal from John Wieland Homes. Covering the 35 acres of both the former "PVC" pipe farm and the former Shallowford hospital site, the redevelopment includes approximately 110 single family homes (including many with "master bedroom on the main floor'), several acres of open parks and greenspace, and a trail across the two parcels that could connect to Brook Run Park.
As a later phase of the redevelopment, the plans also include 3 acres of commercial space for neighborhood shops and restaurants, plus additional acreage for a possible future city hall site.
At our May 29 meeting, Council will consider a development agreement, appoint the Urban Redevelopment Agency, and consider a resolution to permit the rezoning.

Summer Roadwork Season is Here
With the end of the school year comes the summer roadwork season. Two dozen streets are scheduled for repaving, sidewalks, drainage repair, and/or other infrastructure improvements. Though road and sidewalk construction will occur across all sectors of the city, I especially highlight these two heavily traveled streets:
Mt. Vernon Road (between Lisa Lane and Ashford-Dunwoody Road)
  • Chamblee-Dunwoody Road (between Valley View Road and Cambridge Drive).
  • Please be alert to construction crews, delays, and possible detours.
Intersection Improvements Update
At our May 29 meeting, Council will consider funding the final design work of intersection improvements at Tilly Mill Road and N. Peachtree Road. Once the final design is completed, Council will seek funding for implementation.
The next intersection up for improvements is Vermack Road at Womack Road. Council will consider initial design funding also at our May 29 meeting. The initial design work will explore possible solutions. Traffic count studies have already begun.
If you have input or suggestions on these or any other City Council issues, please let me know. Should any of your organizations, church groups, neighborhood associations, etc. desire a City Council member to attend and provide in-person updates, please let me know.
Thank you for your confidence. I'm very honored to serve you.
Terry Nall
Dunwoody City Council (At Large)
