    The application was pulled by applicant.

  • Mt Vernon/Ashford Dunwoody RD intersection/green space
    A presentation was made by representatives of URS and DeKalb County’s Ted Rhinehart. DHA questions included requests for better pedestrian safety crossing the proposed free flow right turn lane at Mt. Vernon. The DHA requested a pedestrian light to allow safe crossing. URS stated that the DOT did not like pavers because of upkeep and that pedestrian lighting was not budgeted for this project. Both are requests of the DHA. Discussions will continue.

  • Kingswood Methodist Church- Expansion
    Dunwoody resident Bill McCahan presented plans along with Sr. Pastor Dave Benson & architect, Steve Ray, for a 28,000 square foot expansion. It was presented that all surrounding neighbors have been notified and involved in the expansion plans. The detention pond would move from the east side to the west side. Concerns were brought up by the DHA on the color of the expansion’s proposed tin roof. The architect agreed the roof would be of neutral colors and of a pitch that would blend in with the surroundings.
