Ø DeKalb County- a presentation was heard by the lawyer representing Jack Warner (sic) developer on their purchase of four homes, 3 ½ acres on Chamblee Dunwoody Road and Valley View. The developers are planning on asking for RA5 from R100 and would put 13 homes on the land, or 1 per .3167 acre. They discussed plans for 2 possible entrances to subdivision, 1 off Valley View and 1 off Chamblee Dunwoody Road. The houses would be 2,800 square feet starting at $500,000 and up ”Depending on the market”. Planned on brick pears with wrought iron fences surrounding the subdivision.
