UPDATED VILLAGE ZONING – City Council Meeting @ Dunwoody City Hall & Online Via Zoom
Aug 10 @ 6:00 pm

At this meeting will be a first read of changes to the Dunwoody Village Overlay District that are proposed to increase density and add more housing.

DHA has been directly involved with preserving undisturbed buffers between the Dunwoody Village commercial district and the neighboring homes.  DHA has also been part of the discussion in ensuring that any updates benefit the homeowner community.

Note that zoning changes this month do not mean they will take immediate effect.  These changes set expectations for both developers and homeowners so that when a landowner chooses to improve, or build upon or otherwise redevelop their property, these are the standards they must follow.

Residents are encouraged to share their opinions with city council during public comment.
Sign up to give your comments either in person at city hall (social distancing and mask rules apply) or via Zoom online.

SWANCY REZONING FOR SENIOR LIVING – PLANNING COMMISSION @ Dunwoody City Hall & Online via Zoom
Aug 11 @ 6:00 pm

Meeting Agenda

To speak to this issue in public comment, either in person or via Zoom, please contact the city clerk at the email link above.

The acreage around Swancy Farmhouse, an historic home across Chamblee-Dunwoody road from Dunwoody Nature Center and Austin Elementary, has been the subject of redevelopment for a couple of years.

The local homeowners of older ranch homes around the property have sold their land and developers have been trying to rezone it for "niche" neighborhoods.  Both proposals involve reducing the zoning density from R-100 (lots have minimum 100 feet of street frontage) to R-50 lots (half the street frontage with about 10 feet between homes).  Both proposals also must contend with a privately-owned easement and permission to access it for proper drainage. Both proposals are designed as "age targeted" developments to address the growing need for senior-friendly housing with different features than those enjoyed by younger families.

The first attempt was a proposed 10-unit development of 2-3 story homes that the developer proposed as "senior friendly" with a "master on the main".  This proposal was withdrawn last year.

The latest proposal by Peachland Homes includes a R-50 rezoning with homes designed as single-story bungalows with a partial second-story loft in some models.  Questions regarding the private easement remain.
